The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close Heights Road between M-24 (Lapeer Road) and Kimberly Road in Orion Township on Friday, June 4, and Heights Road just east of Sherry Drive and west of M-24 (Lapeer Road) in Orion Township on Saturday, June 5, for culvert replacements.
The road will close in the morning each day and is expected to reopen in the evening. However, the work on June 5 to replace the culvert on Heights Road just east of Sherry Drive could require an overnight closure with the road possibly reopening the evening of June 6.
The through-traffic detour route for both projects is M-24 (Lapeer Road) to Clarkston Road to Pine Tree Road, back to Heights Road and vice versa. Access to homes and businesses located along Heights Road will be maintained throughout both projects.
Heights Road from M-24 (Lapeer Road) to Joslyn Road is part of the RCOC’s 2021 Preservation Overlay (simple resurfacing) Program. The culverts are being replaced in advance of the preservation overlay project that will be completed on the road this year. Dates for the overlay work will be announced soon.
