Improving Royal Oak

Construction Season Begins

Residents on affected streets will be mailed construction notices in the Spring prior to work beginning with detailed information on the project.

The city realizes construction will be an inconvenience and all efforts to expedite the work will be utilized to minimize traffic conflicts and access to various properties abutting the project. If you have questions you can contact the Engineering Division at 248.246.3260.

CAP1908/09 14 Mile Road Resurfacing Improvements

Greenfield Road to Crooks Road

SOCWA Contractor: Verdeterre Contracting, Inc.

City Contractor: Pamar Enterprises, Inc

This project includes work in conjunction with the South Oakland County Water Authority, Michigan Department of Transportation and the Road Commission for Oakland County.

14 Mile Road will be under construction for most of the 2019 construction season, with traffic often limited to one lane in each direction. Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes during construction, especially during rush hour. For more information regarding the complete scope of the project, visit:

SOCWA's contractor has already begun work on their water main rehabilitation. The city has authorized the use of Maudlin Park for staging materials. Beginning Tuesday March 12th, the current lane closures that exist between Woodward Avenue and Cooper Avenue will be extended to Coolidge Highway. One lane will be open in each direction for travel, and left turns will be prohibited to help with traffic flow and reduce back-ups.

The city's contractor plans to begin setting up their staging area at Upton Park and delivering materials to the site this week. Construction on the city's water main is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of March 18th. There will be no interruption in garbage and recycling pick up.
