The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has closed Cooley Lake Road, from Carroll Lake Road to Bogie Lake Road on the border of White Lake Township and Commerce Township, starting yesterday, Monday, July 10, until late October for the replacement of culverts that carry the Huron River under the road. 

            During the closure, the detour route for through traffic will be Carroll Lake Road to Wise Road to Bogie Lake Road, back to Cooley Lake Road and vice versa. 

To access Oxbow Lake Road, motorists will need to utilize Bogie Lake Road to Cooley Lake Road, just west of the closure.  

Access to homes and businesses in the closed section will be maintained east and west of the culvert work throughout the duration of the project. 

            The project will cost approximately $2.45 million and is being funded by RCOC. The contractor for the project is Anlaan of Grand Haven. 

            The project includes: 

  • Removal of the existing culverts under Cooley Lake Road and replacement with a pre-cast concrete bridge.
  • Placement of curbs and gutters in the vicinity of the new bridge.
  • Replacement of the guardrail in the vicinity of the bridge.
  • Removal and replacement of the asphalt pavement in the vicinity of the bridge.
  • Minor drainage improvements in the vicinity of the bridge. 

This section of Cooley Lake Road carries approximately 9,640 vehicles daily.
