The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will be holding a public information meeting tomorrow, Thursday, Aug. 18 for the 2012 gravel road paving project on Cooley Lake Road.
The road commission will pave Cooley Lake Road from just east of Duck Lake Road to Mystic Valley/Majestic Oaks, a stretch which includes four communities — Milford, Highland, White Lake and Commerce.
The $4.4 million project involves paving the gravel portion of Cooley Lake Road along with facilitating concrete curb, gutter and sewer work where needed for proper drainage.
Of the $4.4 million, approximately $3.2 million will be paid for with federal funds. The RCOC is contributing $627,500, while Commerce and White Lake will dole out $211,250 each. Highland Township is paying $45,000 with Milford Township adding $35,000.
During construction, the roadway will be closed to through traffic. Access will be provided to motorists accessing homes and businesses in the project area at all times.
The project is anticipated to begin next spring and will be completed by the fall of 2012.
The meeting will be held in the large group instruction room at Lakeland High School located at 1630 Bogie Lake Road in White Lake from 4-7 p.m.
