Road project updates from the Road Commission for Oakland County

According to a recent press release, the following projects may cause traffic delays on Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) roads between April 23 and April 30 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.

Asterisks next to projects denote new projects or a change since last week.
