[ARCHIVED] RCOC ROAD CONSTRUCTION & PERMIT PROJECTS UPDATE FOR MAY 22-31

Walton Blvd paving west of Adams Road, photo taken on 5/21/19

The following projects may cause traffic delays on Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) roads between May 22 and May 31 or may start shortly thereafter. 

It is RCOC’s goal to conduct road improvement projects in a way that interferes with traffic as little as possible. This list includes both Road Commission projects and projects conducted by others, under permit, on roads under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission.

Please note: This information is subject to change. Projects can change from day to day, and traffic delays can develop in a matter of minutes due to weather, emergency situations, etc.

Also, RCOC road construction projects will be suspended at 3 p.m. Friday, May 24, for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.  Work will resume after 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28.

The project list is attached.                                        

Additional information about current and upcoming projects can also be viewed on the RCOC website:   2018 RCOC ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS (http://www.rcocweb.org/189/Road-Projects).
