Road work suspended for holiday weekend

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will suspend road construction projects over the holiday weekend, starting at 3 p.m. on Friday, May 24. Work will resume after 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28. "The Road commission wants to ensure that its roads are as free of obstructions as possible during this period because of the increased traffic we typically see on a holiday," said RCOC Managing Director Dennis Kolar. "That should help to ensure safe and convenient holiday travel for motorists in Oakland County." The work restrictions also apply to most heavy earth-moving equipment and other large contractor equipment on county roads (vehicles that require a permit to travel on county roads) during the holiday. Some lane closures will be eliminated for the holiday. John R from Square Lake Road to South Boulevard in Troy remains closed to through traffic until late May. The southbound closure of John R between Long Lake and Square Lake Road also remains in place until the completion of the project in the late fall.
