UPDATE: WALDON ROAD EXPECTED TO CLOSE AT EAST SIDE OF
BALDWIN ROAD IN ORION TOWNSHIP ON MONDAY, SEPT. 23
Beverly Hills, MI – The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) contractor on the Baldwin Road widening project in Orion Township (Dan’s Excavating of Shelby Township) now expects to close Waldon Road at the east side of Baldwin Road, on Monday, September 23.
Once closed, the road is expected to remain closed until the late fall, though the duration could be shorter or longer depending on weather and other factors.
The closure is necessary for watermain and storm sewer installation and concrete paving as part of the ongoing project.
The Waldon closure will overlap the ongoing closure of Maybee Road at Baldwin. It is necessary to close both roads simultaneously to ensure the contractor can complete two new lanes of Baldwin to provide a safe transition to winter, when the project will shut down for the season.
There are two detour routes for Waldon traffic: Baldwin Road to Clarkston Road to Joslyn Road and back to Waldon Road and vice versa and Waldon Road to Joslyn Road to Brown Road to Baldwin Road and back to Waldon Road and vice versa. This section of Waldon Road carries about 9,900 vehicles per day.
