The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), in partnership with the City of Troy and Bloomfield Township, is rehabilitating and repaving Adams Road between Long Lake Road and Square Lake Road, on the border of these two communities. The work is expected to start June 14.
During the work, northbound Adams Road will remain open to local traffic. However, Adams Road will be closed to southbound traffic starting approximately June 21 – between June 14 and June 21, two-way traffic will be allowed. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October this year.
The detour for southbound traffic starting June 21 will be Square Lake Road to Coolidge Highway to Long Lake Road and back to Adams Road.
The project is expected to cost $2.8 million. Fifty-seven percent of the cost will be paid for with federal road funds. The remainder of the costs will be shared by RCOC and the City of Troy.
The 1.02-mile project includes:
- Milling (grinding off) the existing asphalt surface
- Repaving with new asphalt
- A new center, left-turn lane added between Vineyards Drive and Westview Road
- Passing lanes and right-turn extensions in many locations
- Installation of curbs and gutters
- Upgrading pedestrian crosswalks to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Storm-sewer and drainage improvements
- Upgrading of the traffic signal at the intersection of Long Lake and Adams roads
The contractor for the project is Pro-Line Asphalt Paving Corp. of Washington Township.
This section of Adams Road carries approximately 13,600 vehicles per day. For more information on the
