This project was a key part of a $40M solution to relieve traffic congestion, improve safety and connectivity in the “triangle” area of Oakland County.
It included construction of a high-volume, multi-lane roundabout and reconfiguration of 1.3 miles of roadway at the convergence of Northwestern Highway (M-10) and Orchard Lake Road near 14 Mile Road in Oakland County, MI. It was conceived in the late 1990s to improve the connection between Orchard Lake Road/M-10 area.
Requiring significant stakeholder engagement, application of custom traffic modeling methods, and right-of-way/utility avoidance, the project provides capacity for 80,000 vehicles per day, while promoting walkability and economic vitality in a major commercial area of Oakland County.
OHM Advisors was the lead design team on this complex project.
