Oakland County, Michigan, continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. Unfortunately, there simply isn't enough money available to build new roads or widen existing roads fast enough to keep up with the growth.
RCOC is still on the cutting edge of technology, and we continues to develop our system. We receive and share information (data and live video) about traffic conditions with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).
When RCOC officials concluded in the mid-1980s that it was unlikely that there would ever be enough money to make all the road improvements necessary to meet the traffic needs of Oakland County, they began searching for alternatives to traditional road construction projects.
