WEEKLY ROAD CONSTRUCTION & PERMIT PROJECTS UPDATE (8/12-8/16)

road_closed

The following projects may cause traffic delays on Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) roads between August 12 and August 16 or may start shortly thereafter. 

It is RCOC’s goal to conduct road improvement projects in a way that interferes with traffic as little as possible. This list includes both Road Commission projects and projects conducted by others, under permit, on roads under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission.

Please note: This information is subject to change. Projects can change from day to day, and traffic delays can develop in a matter of minutes due to weather, emergency situations, etc.

The project list is attached.                                        

 Additional information about current and upcoming projects can also be viewed on the RCOC website:   2018 RCOC ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS (http://www.rcocweb.org/189/Road-Projects).
