[ARCHIVED] Elizabeth Lake Rd. Intermittent Lane Closures Start April 24, 2018

lane closure

The Road Commission for Oakland County will perform preservation overlay milling and paving on Elizabeth Lake Rd. between Cooley Lake Rd. & Cass Lake Rd. in Waterford beginning April 24th. Motorists can expect intermittent lane closures until project completion.

Preservation overlays, commonly known as simple resurfacing, consists of placing 1.5 inches to 2 inches of asphalt on the surface of a road.   This technique is done on heavier traveled roads that are considered in moderately good shape.    Preservation overlay extends the life of the road until there is a longer term project such as reconstruction or resurfacing with extensive work done on the road's base.    The projects are either funded federally or by the RCOC through local dollars.  

Most projects can be done quickly and often under flaggers directing traffic within the construction zone; however, others involving federal or Tri-Party (provided by Oakland County General Government) funding will take longer to complete.   If the safety of motorists and workers becomes an issue, there could be an intermittent closure of the road (especially areas that intersect with a busy road).  Approximately 40 miles (with additional 3 projects) of roads were completed in 2017.  

The Preservation Overlay program is expected to begin late April/early May.  The work is also weather-dependent.    
Shoulder and pavement marking work will also be done on the roads after the paving is complete.
