The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close Eston Road from Clarkston Road to Algonquin Boulevard in Independence Township from June 1 through late July for culvert removal and replacement.
The road will completely close to traffic just north of Alamo Avenue. Residential traffic will have access north and south of Alamo Avenue during the culvert work.
The detour for through traffic is Clarkston Road to Baldwin Road to Indianwood Road, back to Eston Road and vice versa.
Once the culvert work is complete, Eston Road from Clarkston Road to Algonquin Boulevard will be milled and resurfaced with asphalt utilizing Independence Township road millage dollars. The paving does not include the gravel section of Eston Road.
The contractor for the project is Cadillac Asphalt of Clarkston. This section of Eston Road carries approximately 3,420 vehicles daily.
