1. MAJOR ROAD WIDENING AND RECONSTRUCTION – DEQUINDRE, LONG LAKE TO BEAUMONT HOSPITAL
The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will widen and reconstruct Dequindre Road to a new 5-lane concrete pavement between Long Lake and Beaumont Hospital. Underground construction started in September 2017 and continued through the winter. Reconstruction and widening of the road is anticipated to start as weather allows in the spring of 2018. All road work is to be complete and open to traffic in November 2018.
2. MAJOR ROAD REHABILITATION – SOUTH BOULEVARD, ADAMS TO COOLIDGE
This is a multi-agency project between the RCOC and the cities of Rochester Hills and Troy. This project will rehabilitate the final two mile section of South Boulevard, from Adams to Crooks. The project will remove and replace the pavement between Adams and Coolidge and mill (grind off) the pavement between Coolidge and Crooks and overlay it with asphalt pavement. Detours are anticipated for through traffic between Adams and Coolidge. Work is anticipated to start in the spring of 2018 and be complete by Labor Day.
3. CONCRETE ROAD REPLACEMENT – SOMERSET PARK APARTMENTS
This is the final phase of a 2-year project to remove and replace the roads in the Somerset Park Apartment complex with new concrete pavement roads. This phase will include construction on Somerset between Coolidge and Kirts. Work is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2018 and be complete by late summer 2018. Project information will be available at www.troyroadsrock.com.
4. LOCAL ROAD OVERLAYS – SECTION 10 AND SECTION 15
The following roads in Section 10 are scheduled to receive an asphalt pavement overlay: Sylvanwood, Trinway, Creston and Somerton. The following roads in Section 15 are scheduled to receive and asphalt pavement overlay: Belhaven, Wilton, Beldale, Belzair, Dorshire and the asphalt portion of Choice Court. This project includes milling (grinding off) select areas of the existing pavement and placing a new asphalt pavement surface. Work is anticipated to start in the spring of 2018 and be complete by the end of June.
5. CONCRETE SLAB REPLACEMENT – LOCAL ROADS
The Dept. of Public Works will be replacing concrete slabs at scattered locations throughout the City. Specific locations and additional information can be viewed at www.troymi.gov/streetsprojects. These roads were selected based on the City’s pavement rating system (PASER) and field verification. Sidewalk ramps adjacent to the road project will be replaced as necessary. Work is anticipated to start in early May and continue into the fall of 2018.
6. WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT - ROUNDTREE LOOP
Sections of the existing water main in the Wexford Parkhomes condominium area are under porches or structures. Past water main breaks in this area have required the removal of entire front porches and walkways, causing expensive repairs and disruption to residents. This project will relocate the water main from its current location to a new location under the road to avoid conflicts in the future. Work is anticipated to start in the spring of 2018 and be complete by the end of June.
7. WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT – ROAD CROSSINGS ON CROOKS, AXTELL AND COOLIDGE
Several water main road crossings will be replaced with new water main. The locations are: Axtell, between Maple and Somerset; Coolidge, between Mountain and South Boulevard; and Crooks, between Maplelawn and Kirts. The replacement of these crossings will upgrade fire flows along with replacing old water main that has experienced water main breaks in the past. Work is anticipated to start in the spring of 2018 and be complete by the end of June.
