Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) Managing Director Dennis Kolar has announced that most RCOC road-construction projects will be suspended at 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, for the Labor Day holiday weekend.
Work will resume after 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
“The Road Commission wants to ensure that its roads are as free of obstructions as possible during this period because of the increased traffic we typically see on a holiday,” Kolar stated. “That should help to ensure safe and convenient holiday travel for motorists in Oakland County.”
Kolar also prohibited the hauling of most heavy earth-moving equipment and other large contractor equipment on county roads (vehicles that require a permit to travel on county roads) during the holiday. Some lane closures will be eliminated for the holiday.
Roads that are currently closed for construction, such as Hatchery Road west of Dixie Highway in Waterford Township and Currie Road from Eight Mile Road to Nine Mile Road in Lyon Township will remain closed during the holiday weekend.
