Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) Managing Director Dennis Kolar has announced that most RCOC road construction projects will be suspended at 3 p.m. Friday, July 1, for the July 4 holiday weekend.
Work will resume after 6 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5.
“The Road Commission wants to ensure that its roads are as free of obstructions as possible during this period because of the increased traffic we typically see on a holiday,” Kolar stated. “That should help to ensure safe and convenient holiday travel for motorists in Oakland County.”
Kolar also prohibited the hauling of most heavy earth-moving equipment and other large contractor equipment on county roads (vehicles that require a permit to travel on county roads) during the holiday. Some lane closures will be eliminated for the holiday.
Two of the road closures that will remain in place through the weekend are:
- Pontiac Trail from Haggerty to Green Lake Road in West Bloomfield Township remains closed to through traffic until approximately late July.
- Avon Road from John R to 23 Mile Road, including the Avon/Dequindre Road intersection, in Rochester Hills also remains closed to through traffic until August.
