The following projects may cause traffic delays on Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) roads between July 31 and August 7 or may start shortly thereafter.

Please note: This information is subject to change. Projects can change from day to day, and traffic delays can develop in a matter of minutes due to weather, emergency situations, etc.
