The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will begin a resurfacing project on South Blvd. from east of Crooks Road to west of Livernois Road and east of John R Road to west of Dequindre Road in Rochester Hills and Troy on June 15.
During the first phase, work will begin on the John R to Dequindre segment, and the road will remain open to traffic with flag control in the work zone areas. The second phase of the project, from Crooks to Livernois, is expected to begin approximately July 6.
Business and residential access will be maintained throughout the project. Property owners are asked to mark lawn-sprinkler heads and to remove any landscaping along the South Blvd. right of way in preparation for the project.
The $1.7 million South Blvd. resurfacing project is jointly funded by RCOC, the City of Rochester Hills, the City of Troy and Oakland County general government (through the Tri-Party program).
The 1.35 mile project includes:
- Milling and paving with asphalt
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian crossings
- Water main replacements by the City of Rochester Hills
The prime contractor for the project is Cadillac Asphalt of Clarkston. The resurfacing project is expected to conclude in late August.
