Spray Patching on 35 Lane Miles of Oakland County Roads Beginning on Aug. 19

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) announced that they will spray patch 35 lane miles of roads throughout the county starting Wednesday, Aug. 19.

During the spray patching operation, the roads will remain open, and flaggers will direct traffic. Roads scheduled for the spray patching include:

  • Pontiac Trail, from Orchard Lake to Haggerty Road in West Bloomfield and Commerce townships
  • Union Lake Road, Richardson to Cooley Lake in Commerce Township
  • Elizabeth Lake Road, Cass Lake to Telegraph Road in Waterford Township
  • Haggerty Road, 9 Mile to 10 Mile/Grand River in Novi and Farmington Hills
  • Maple Road, Telegraph to Cranbrook in Bloomfield Township
  • 14 Mile Road, Southfield to Woodward in Birmingham and Beverly Hills

Spray patching involves cleaning out the potholes and filling them with aggregate mixed with emulsion. The material is pressure sprayed into the pothole by equipment used specifically for this process.  The material then becomes compacted and bonded making for a longer-term fix of the road. The process can only be used on shallow potholes and cannot be used during the winter months.

The prime contractor for the work is Spray-Patch Road Repair Inc. of Madison Heights. The work is weather dependent and should be completed in late October. For more information on spray patching, visit:  Spray-Patch.com/index.html
