The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), in partnership with Royal Oak and the Village of Beverly Hills, has opened the Greenfield Road/Normandy Road/Beverly Road roundabout a week ahead of schedule; reopening on August 26.
The intersection closed on June 12 for the construction of a one-lane roundabout. The project also included the permanent closure of Beverly Court at Greenfield Road, both north and south of the roundabout, in order to accommodate the new roundabout.
The approximately $1.65 million project was funded by the City of Royal Oak, the Village of Beverly Hills, RCOC and Oakland County general government (through the Tri-Party Program).
The contractor for the project is DiPonio Contracting of Shelby Township. The Greenfield/Normandy/Beverly Road intersection carries approximately 16,000 vehicles daily.
The roundabout is the 39th to open on an RCOC road. Oakland County continues to have the highest concentration of roundabouts of any county in the state.
