Beverly Hills, MI — The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), in partnership with Orion Township, expects to begin reconstruction of Central Drive from Indianwood Road to the Lake Orion Village limits on Monday, July 29  August 5.

During construction, traffic will be maintained on Central Drive, with one lane open in each direction.
