North Holly Road to Close Through Sept 1 for Construction

North Holly Road to Close Through Sept 1 for Construction

(Road Commission for Oakland County, June 20, 2020)

Holly Twp, MIThe Road Commissions for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close North Holly Road between Grange Hall Road and Belford Road on Monday, June 22, in the Village of Holly and Holly Township.

The work is part of the larger resurfacing of North Holly Road from Grange Hall Road north the Genesee County line.

During the Grange Hall to Belford closure, traffic accessing homes and businesses within the closed section will be allowed to travel to and from their destinations. The detour for through traffic will be Grange Hall Road to Dixie Highway to Baldwin Road (in Genesee County) and back to North Holly Road and vice versa.

The closure of this section of North Holly Road is expected to last until approximately Sept. 1. At that point, the closure will shift to the section of North Holly from Belford Road north to the county line.

Traffic traveling to and from the Great Lakes National Cemetery on Belford Road east of North Holly Road should access the cemetery from the north via North Holly Road north of Belford Road during the Grange Hall to Belford closure.

The approximately $4.3 million project is funded by a special federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant with the remainder shared by RCOC and Holly Township.

The project includes:

4.5 miles of Asphalt resurfacing

Improved sight distances

Guardrail installation

Culvert maintenance

High-friction pavement treatment at significant curves to improve safety

Reconstruction of the retaining wall at the North Holly Road/Belford Road intersection

Raising the elevation of the road in three locations to improve drainage

The project should be largely done and the road fully re-opened to traffic by mid-October, with landscape restoration completed by Nov. 7. For more information, visit the project page on the RCOC Website: https://www.rcocweb.org/536/Holly-Road.
