The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) this week announced almost $30 million in 2013 road projects that include two in Farmington Hills.
According to a press release, plans call for repair, rehabilitation and resurfacing on 14 Mile, from Haggerty to Country Way at the Farmington Hills/Commerce Township border, and on Haggerty, from Nine Mile to north of Village Woods Drive at the Novi/Farmington Hills border.
In those areas, the road base will be repaired, and 3-4 inches of new asphalt will be added to existing lanes.
Total cost for the two projects is around $1.35 million. The release indicated that construction season starts as soon as weather permits and typically runs until mid-November.
“We have an aggressive road-improvement program this year, despite the continued insufficiency of state and federal road funding,” RCOC Chairman Greg Jamian said. “However, we are committed to stretching every dollar we receive as far as possible and repairing as many roads as we can. However, there remain many roads that need repairs that we are not able to address due to insufficient funding.”
