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 !
