The Oakland County Federal Aid Task Force, which selects projects to receive federal road funding in the county, will conduct a Task Force/Funding Committee meeting on Oct. 2 at the Costick Center, 28600 W. 11 Mile Road in Farmington Hills. The meeting begins at 9 a.m.
The Task Force’s Funding Committee has selected road-improvement projects through 2021 that will receive federal funds anticipated to come to Oakland County. It is made up of representatives of the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), SMART (the suburban bus system), Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) and representatives of all communities in the county.
During the meeting, the committee will discuss the status of current and future federal-aid-funded projects throughout Oakland County. In addition, the committee will discuss the 2022 call for projects. It is anticipated that just over $17.8 million in federal funding will be available in 2022.
Projects selected must be on federal-aid-eligible roads under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission or cities/villages in Oakland County.
