The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will host a public information meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the planned 2019 paving of Dixboro Road from 8 Mile Road to 9 Mile Road in the communities of Lyon and Green Oak townships.
The meeting will take place at Millennium Middle School Cafeteria, 61526 9 Mile Road, South Lyon. The meeting will be open-house format -- there will be no formal presentations. RCOC staff will be present to answer questions and review the project plans throughout the public meeting.
The project is expected to begin in the fall of 2019 and be completed in the late summer of 2020.
During construction, the road will be closed to through traffic; however, residential traffic will be maintained.
The detour for through traffic will be 8 Mile Road to Pontiac Trail to 9 Mile Road, back to Dixboro Road and vice versa.
The approximately $2.5 million project is eighty percent federally funded with the remaining portion shared by RCOC, Lyon Township, Green Oaks Township and Oakland County general government through the Tri-Party Program.
The project includes:
- Paving this one-mile section of gravel road with asphalt
- Replacing twin culverts under the road
- Improving drainage
- Some curb and gutter installation
