The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will host a public information meeting Thursday, April 26, about the upcoming Walton Blvd. construction project that will involve replacing three culverts and resurfacing Walton Blvd. between Squirrel and Adams roads in Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills.
The meeting is from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Auburn Hills Public Library, 3400 East Seyburn in Auburn Hills. The meeting will be an open-house format -- there will be no formal presentations. RCOC staff will be present to answer questions throughout the public meeting.
The approximately $5.8 million safety project is funded by RCOC.
The project includes:
- Removal of 3 metal culverts and replacing them with concrete “box” culverts
- Concrete curb and gutter repairs
- Resurfacing Walton Blvd from Squirrel to Adams
One side of the boulevard will be closed at all times during the project, but two-way traffic will be maintained on the other side of the boulevard. Residential and business access will be maintained at all times.
Construction is expected to begin in mid-to-late May or early June and conclude in late fall, though the resurfacing could take place in spring of 2019. Project meeting information and updates can be found at: http://www.rcocweb.org/456/Walton-Blvd-Culverts
