Road Construction on Walton, Crooks, and Silverbell

ROAD:                       Walton Blvd. from east of Adams Road to Great Oaks Blvd.

Project:                       RCOC will resurface this road beginning approximately Monday, April 18. During the project at least one lane of Walton will remain open at all times, but motorists may experience some backups, especially during rush hours.

Community:               Rochester Hills

Completion Date:      By Aug. 12


ROAD:                       Crooks Road, just north and south of M-59 (from Austin Street to Star-Batt Drive)

Project:                       The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is resurfacing and widening this section of Crooks to five lanes as part of the widening of the Crooks Road bridge over  M-59. During the work, Crooks is reduced to a single lane in each direction between Austin and Star-Batt. The new M-59 overpass will be four lanes, and two new loop ramps are being added at the interchange to eliminate left turns. The ramps at the interchange are being slightly reconfigured and reconstructed.
