The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) contractor working on Adams Road between Long Lake Road and Square Lake Road, on the border of Troy and Bloomfield Township, is now planning to close the road to southbound traffic next Monday, June 28.
The project involves rehabilitating and repaving this section of Adams Road. Work started June 14 on the project.
Throughout the project, northbound Adams Road will remain open to local traffic. The detour route for southbound traffic starting June 28 will be Square Lake Road to Coolidge Highway to Long Lake Road and back to Adams Road.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of October this year and 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.
