arrowre: Rochester Rd. resurfacing to begin in June, cost $5.6M


Does anyone check what neighboring counties are doing? Van Dyke is closed from Ebeling to 34 Mile until November, and those traveling from areas north of Lakeville are having a major thoroughfare cut off. Macomb county paved the detour BEFORE the road was closed, why does Oakland county think it is okay to send high volumes of heavy traffic down dirt roads and destroy them?

Does the price seem a little high? $5.6M to REPAVE 3.5 miles? Does the timeline seem a little slow? 6 months for a REPAVE? A year to finish the landscaping? Is this the norm for other projects in Michigan?

    Keeping skilled road makers are essential to having good roads. In our economic downturn of these past few years, should the employees be layed off or allowed to find work in other towns, states etc.

    Keeping them busy even doing what may seem to be non productive task, may be better than always searching for skilled road builders. Also, contractors, sub contractors may be under the same scrutiny.
