The following projects may cause traffic delays on Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) roads between May 22 and May 29 or may start shortly thereafter.
It is RCOC’s goal to conduct road improvement projects in a way that interferes with traffic as little as possible. This list includes both Road Commission projects and projects conducted by others, under permit, on roads under the jurisdiction of the Road Commission.
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.
RCOC road construction projects will be suspended at 3 p.m. today (Friday, May 22), for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Work will resume after 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26.
During the Memorial Day weekend, Maple Road at Middlebelt Road in West Bloomfield Township remains closed to through traffic until late June and Maybee and Waldon roads remain closed at the west side of Baldwin Road in Orion Township until July.
The project list is attached.
