St Hugo Altar Guild 's 46th Annual Rummage Sale Wednesday through Friday/

Editors Note: As of Monday morning  DTE was conducting  tree trimming  on  Opdyke Road.
The intersection of Woodward and Opdyke was closed to through traffic. We spoke to one DTE official on the scene who said the work should be completed in time for Sunday church services but that will not help the  Rummage Sale  where sale item drop off are now in progress.

Opdyke was open to through traffic  however Monday evening..It is not know if that is because DTE  completed its task or left early or because of serve storms  that moved through the area this afternoon.  Equipment and traffic cones left on Opdyke seemed to indicate the latter.

Bargain hunters planning to attend  the sale which  annually plays to rave reviews for top notch treasure finds  should prepare an alternate route (if necessary)  game plan for the Wednesday through Friday event. Some suggestions are listed below and neither will take you out of very far out of your way.
Since DTE seems to keep normal business hours you can expect to be able  to exit the event on Wednesday and  Thursday on Opdyke.
For those those coming  North or South on Woodward Avenue the  best bet is  to take Hickory Grove intersection east. Hickory Grove dead ends at the at Opdyke and the St. Hugo school which is where the Rummage sale is held.  If you are coming East or West on  Long Lake you may follow the same North South Directions provided for Woodward Avenue or you may take Kensington North which also dead ends at Opdyke.The St. Hugo School will be on your left. across from the Oakland Community College Campus.

While everyone concerned regrets any inconvenience  such slight detours may cause, The intrepid will enjoy the benefits of  less contested rummage sale rewards. Enjoy !
