(WXYZ) — The Road Commission for Oakland County released a list of road projects scheduled for 2019.

The Board of Road Commissioners approved a $25 million commitment for its preservation overlay program, which will result in over 90 miles of roads being resurfaced.

The program involves simple resurfacing with two inches of asphalt of roads that are in fair condition, which will provide a new road surface and extend the life of the road by five to 10 years.

“This Board is committed to doing everything we can, with the resources available, to improve the roads,” stated RCOC Chairman Greg Jamian. “We believe the preservation overlay program is the best bang for the dollars and the best way to improve as many roads as possibly as quickly as we can.”

“We are taking a step in the right direction with this contract,” he noted. “However, due to Michigan’s decades of under-funding its roads, the needs on our roads remains far larger than this contract.”
