29 November – Roads Commission briefing at Orion Road/Stoney Creek/Conklin Road roundabout

Orion Township, MI – The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), in partnership with Orion Township, will host a public information session on Tuesday, November 29th regarding the proposed 2023 roundabout construction at Orion Road/Stoney Creek Road / Conklin Road junction in township.

The meeting will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Blanche Sims Elementary School, 465 East Jackson Street in Lake Orion. The meeting will be held in an open house format – there will be no formal presentations. RCOC staff will be present throughout the meeting to answer questions.

The approximately $1.6 million project will be funded primarily by federal dollars, with matching dollars being provided by the RCOC and the Orion Municipality.

The project includes:

  • Construction of a modern roundabout at the intersection of Orion Road and Stoney Creek Road. Conklin Road will be a ‘T’ junction with Orion Road north of the roundabout.
  • Reconstruction of 0.2 miles of road with asphalt.
  • Improvements to storm sewers and drainage.
  • Construction of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) pedestrian crossings with path connections.
  • Installation of new curbs and gutters.
  • Installation of crossing lighting.

Construction is expected to start in the summer of 2023, and the intersection will be closed to traffic. Access to homes and businesses within the construction zone will be maintained during the works. The project ends in late autumn 2023.

The detour route for through traffic: Adams Road to Silver Bell Road to Lapeer Road (M-24) to Flint Street to Miller Road to Conklin Road and back to Orion Road and vice versa.

Anyone wishing to attend the convention and requiring special accommodations under the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Title VI, including those who need language assistance, should call the RCOC at 248-645-2000 and ask to the RCOC Engineering Department to be forwarded to submit your request. The Roads Commission will provide such services free of charge with reasonable advance notice.
