    It’s 1/25/19 to 1/28/19 that Beulah Rd will be closed at 9 Mile Rd.

    One of those Orange electronic construction signs has a notice on it that Beulah Rd at 9 Mile is going to be closed. I don’t remember the date for it. I’m guessing it is to install the new traffic signal cross members to cover the new much bigger intersection, but that is only a guess.
