PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING FOR PLANNED ROUNDABOUT AT ORION/STONEY CREEK/CONKLIN ROAD
Tuesday, November 29, 2022
Public information meeting for construction of a roundabout at Conklin/Stoney Creek Road and a "T" intersection at Conklin Road and Orion Road. No formal presentation, Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will have exhibits and answer questions regarding the project.
The approximately $1.6 million project is funded mostly by federal dollars with the RCOC and Orion Township providing matching dollars.
The project includes:
- Construction of a modern roundabout at the Orion Road/Stoney Creek Road intersection. Conklin Road will be a “T” intersection with Orion Road north of the roundabout.
- Reconstruction of 0.2 miles of road with aspahlt.
- Improvements to storm sewers and drainage.
- Construction of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant pedestrian crosswalks with pathway connections.
- Placement of new curbs and gutters.
- Installation of intersection lighting.
Construction is expected to start in the summer of 2023, with the intersection closing to traffic. Access to homes and businesses within the construction zone will be maintained during the work. The project will conclude in the late fall of 2023.
The detour routes for through traffic: Adams Road to Silver Bell Road to Lapeer Road (M-24) to Flint Street to Miller Road to Conklin Road, and back to Orion Road and vice versa.
Anyone wishing to attend the meeting who requires special accommodations in accordance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Title VI, including those requiring language assistance, should call RCOC at 248-645-2000 and ask to be directed to the RCOC Engineering Department to submit your request.
