The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has closed Fish Lake Road, from Grange Hall Road to Academy Road in Holly Township, to relocate utilities and replace two culverts under the road. The project completion is expected in late October.

  • Removal and replacement of the two culverts under the road
  • Resurfacing the road over the culverts with asphalt
  • New wing walls on the culverts
