West Bloomfield Township has announced that it has received $337,176 in supplemental Tri-party funding from the Road Commission of Oakland County (RCOC).
It has also announced that those funds will be used for the design and reconstruction of 14 Mile Road between Millwood Drive and Haggerty Road, after the proposal was approved by the township Board of Trustees on Sept. 24 at a special budget meeting.
Township Supervisor Michele Economou Ureste said that a township resident previously visited her office regarding the 14 Mile Road rehabilitation project conducted by Farmington Hills that omitted 1,570 linear feet of roadway for repair from Millwood to Haggerty.
Around that same time, the RCOC announced a Sept. 4 deadline to apply for uncommitted, supplemental Tri-party funds.
The Tri-party Program involves one-third funding from Oakland County, one-third from the RCOC and one-third from the participating community. Projects on RCOC roads are selected by the communities with the approval of the road commission.
This announcement comes after the Oakland County Board of Commissioners Finance Committee at its Aug. 16 meeting approved a Tri-Party project consisting of resurfacing Nashway Drive from Norma Lee to Maple Road.
Currently there is no timetable as to when the 14 Mile Road project will be started and completed.
