The Oakland County Federal Aid Committee, which selects projects to receive federal road funding in the county, will meet Sept. 7 at 9 a.m. The meeting will be held at the Rochester Hills City Auditorium, 1000 Rochester in Drive in Rochester Hills.
The Funding Committee has selected road-improvement projects through 2025 that will receive federal funds anticipated to come to Oakland County. The committee is made up of representatives of the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), all communities in the county, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), SMART (the suburban bus system) and the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG).
During the meeting, the committee will discuss the status of current and future federally funded road projects throughout Oakland County. In addition, the committee will discuss the 2026 call for projects. It is anticipated that $21.7 million in federal funding will be available countywide in 2026. The committee may also choose to discuss a possible call for 2027 projects with anticipated countywide funding of $22 million for that year.
Projects selected must be on roads designated as “federal-aid-eligible” and under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission or cities/villages in Oakland County.
