M5 Construction

MDOT has reported that the construction scheduled for M-5 will start on April 22 and is planned to be completed by June 19, 2017. The construction will include the closure of the southbound lanes first for around 3 ½ weeks and then the northbound lanes for 2 ½ weeks. The repair work will be for M-5 from the freeway all the way to Pontiac Trail. The entire roadway will be closed though for these dates (south bound first and then northbound). The cross bound traffic for E West Maple and 14 Mile Rd will be open, one lane each way. The construction company doing the work does plan on working the Memorial Day weekend also.

There will be large signs placed on the shoulder prior to this work advising motorists of the upcoming closures. MDOT does not plan on placing any detour signs. Work will be done 7 days a week with limited nighttime construction.

Commerce Township’s Position Regarding Changes in the Medical Marihuana Laws

Commerce Township is aware of the three Public Acts signed into law in September 2016 which address medical marihuana, particularly the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. The Licensing Act permits the State to issue licenses for businesses associated with medical marihuana, but such licenses cannot be issued until December 2017 and only if the Township specifically passes an ordinance permitting such licenses. The Township currently does not have such an ordinance. 

The Commerce Township Board of Trustees, in consultation with the Township attorneys, will be deciding what, if any, actions it will take in response to the new laws. In the meantime, the Township will continue to follow federal, state and local laws pertaining to marihuana.
