The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has approved a permit allowing Consumers Energy to close multiple roads in succession throughout Waterford, Milford, Rose and Highland townships, for a pipeline replacement project beginning Tuesday, July 7.
Each road is expected to be closed for less than a week. The entire project is expected to be completed by mid-August.
The roads included are:
During the all the closures, pedestrian and business access will be maintained.
The construction is a part of a four-phase, $610 million Consumers Energy project to modernize the Saginaw Trail Pipeline. The project started in 2017 and is expected to be finished in 2021. Consumers Energy notes that replacing the 78 miles of 1940s pipeline with 94.4 miles of newly installed pipeline will help move natural gas more quickly, safely and efficiently.
Oakland county is part of phase four which includes 28.2 miles of construction.
