UPDATE: MILFORD ROAD CLOSURE FOR CULVERT REPLACEMENT IN HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP PUSHED TO JUNE 29 DUE TO CONFLICTING MDOT PROJECT
Beverly Hills, MI – The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has pushed back the date for a one-day closure of Milford Road between Lone Tree Road and Rowe Road in Highland Township to remove and replace two culverts on Milford Road to Saturday, June 29.
In the case of inclement weather, the alternate date is Sunday, June 30.
The project had originally been scheduled for this Saturday, June 22, but was pushed back when RCOC learned that the Michigan Department of Transportation has scheduled a project for June 22 on the section of M-59 that is part of the Milford Road detour route during the closure.
During the Milford Road closure, the detour route will be Commerce Road to Hickory Ridge Road to M-59 and back to Milford Road and vice versa. Access to residential and business properties within the closure will be maintained throughout the project.
The first culvert to be replaced is south of Watkins Blvd., while the second culvert is north of Reid Road.
This project is scheduled during the weekend in order to prevent delays and minimize inconvenience. This section of Milford Road carries approximately 14,250 vehicles per day.
