Besides John R, Most County Road Construction to Pause for Memorial Day Weekend

Besides John R, Most County Road Construction to Pause for Memorial Day Weekend

(Road Commission for Oakland County, May 20, 2019)

Beverly Hills, Mich. — Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) Managing Director Dennis Kolar has announced that most RCOC road construction projects will be suspended at 3 p.m. Friday, May 24, for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

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,” Kolar stated. “That should help to ensure safe and convenient holiday travel for motorists in Oakland County.”

Kolar also prohibited the hauling of 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 Blvd in the City of Troy, remains closed to through traffic until the late May.  The southbound closure of John R between Long Lake and Square Lake Road also remains in place until completion of the project in late fall.
