RCOC publishes new county road map – now available!

A new Oakland County road map is now available from the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC).

The new map is drawn from the Oakland County Enterprise Geographic Information System (GIS) program.

“We feel that one of the services we can provide as the county road commission is to offer maps to those using the roads we maintain,” stated RCOC Board Chairman Greg Jamian. “This map has the most up-to-date road information available anywhere for Oakland County.”

RCOC Vice-Chairman Ron Fowkes noted the map is updated from the last RCOC map, which was published in 2012. ”We recognize that many people now use GPS systems for navigation purposes, but there are still many benefits of a map of the entire county,” he said.

RCOC Commissioner Eric Wilson added that the new map includes a complete directory of all roads under RCOC jurisdiction. “This makes it much easier to find a specific road in the county,” Wilson said.

The new maps are available free of charge, but with a limit of two per person. Maps can be picked up at RCOC’s two administrative offices:

1.      31001 Lahser Road (at 13 Mile) in Beverly Hills

2.     2420 Pontiac Lake Road (at County Center Drive West) in Waterford  Twp.

Additionally, the Road Commission will mail maps to those requesting them (up to two) upon receipt of payment to cover the cost of postage to mail the maps. To receive maps by mail, provide a check or money order made out to Road Commission for Oakland County (the name must be exactly as written here), and provide the exact cost of the postage for the map(s). The postage rate for one map is $1.61. The rate for two maps is $2.45.

For more information about the maps, call the RCOC Clerk’s Office at (248) 645-2000, ext. 2290.
