Baldwin Road Reconstruction - Phase I & II

Client

Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC)

Location

Oakland County, MI

In response to extreme congestion caused by 30,000 vehicles traveling daily along Baldwin Road in Northern Oakland County, the RCOC and Orion Township teamed with OHM Advisors to increase capacity and spur economic growth along a three-mile stretch of the corridor (Morgan to Gregory and Gregory to Waldon). The scope includes widening and changing the roadway to a boulevard and installation of a series of five roundabouts, while relocating several miles of utilities and planning around protected wetlands. This expansive project is being designed and constructed in two phases. Phase I construction wrapped in late 2018. Phase II will be complete in May 2020.
