Project Study:OLR - Road-Diet Study (Please note: Due to the size of this document it may take longer than expected to open.)
Project limits: Commerce Road to Middlebelt Road
Communities: Orchard Lake Village, Keego Harbor, Sylvan Lake and West Bloomfield Township
Funding: Fiscal Year 2023 Federal Surface Transportation Program
Project details: Federal funding to resurface this road has been programmed for fiscal year 2023. The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has identified major safety concerns along the roadway and intends to address these concerns while also improving the condition of the pavement.
The lack of a center, left-turn lane is the primary concern as it relates to safety.
In order to effectively improve the operations of the corridor, RCOC hired a consulting firm to study the current traffic patterns and conditions. This study was conducted to evaluate potential design alternatives to allow the integration of a center, left-turn lane to improve safety without simultaneously increasing traffic delays.
