The Road Commission of Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close Grass Lake Road between Ormond and Steeple Hill roads in White Lake Township on Monday, May 4, for a gravel road paving project.
During the closure, access to residential property will be maintained.
The detour for through traffic is Ormond Road to Highland Road (M-59) to Hill Road, back to Grass Lake Road and vice versa.
The approximately $3 million project is funded by RCOC and White Lake Township. The township’s portion is funded through a state grant.
The project includes:
- Asphalt paving
- Improved drainage and road alignment
- Concrete curb and gutter
- New signage
The contractor for the project is Dan’s Excavating of Shelby Township. The road is expected to reopen to traffic in early October.
