The Oakland County Federal Aid Committee, which selects projects to receive federal road funding in the county, will meet on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 9 a.m.
The meeting will be at the Farmington Hills Community Center-The Hawk, 29995 West Twelve Mile Road, Farmington Hills.
During the meeting, the committee will review projects submitted for 2026 and 2027 federal road funds coming to the county. The projects must be on roads eligible for federal road funds and under Road Commission, city or village jurisdiction in 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) and SMART (the suburban bus system).
For 2026, the committee anticipates approximately $21.7 million being available to award for road projects. In 2027, the committee expects road-project funding to be approximately $22.1 million.
Projects receiving federal road funds are typically selected three years before construction. Projects are selected based on an objective point system – all projects that are submitted are rated and ranked based on the point system, which takes into account safety considerations, traffic volumes, traffic operations, cost and other factors.
