The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close Clarkston Road from Sashabaw Road to Flemings Lake Road in Independence Township from Aug. 4 through early September for resurfacing work. The start date is weather-dependent and could change.
Access to homes and businesses along Clarkston Road in the construction zone will be maintained throughout the work. The detour for through traffic is Flemings Lake Road to Walters Road to Waldon Road, back to Clarkston Road and vice versa.
The resurfacing work is funded mainly through an Independence Township road millage. The closure is necessary for the removal of the current pavement, grading/gravel work on the road’s base and paving with asphalt.
The contractor for the project is Cadillac Asphalt of Farmington Hills. This section of Clarkston Road carries approximately 5,570 vehicles daily.
