The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will host a public information meeting Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 4 to 7 p.m. on the planned 2020/2021 paving of Barron Road from Grange Hall Road to Groveland Road in Groveland Township. The meeting will be held at the Groveland Township Hall, 4695 Grange Hall Rd., Holly. The meeting will be an open-house format — there will be no formal presentation. RCOC staff will be present to answer questions and review the project plans throughout the public meeting. The approximately $6.2-million project is mostly federally funded, with the remaining portion shared by RCOC, Groveland Township and Oakland County general government (through the tri-party program). The project is expected to start in the winter of 2020 with tree removal and utility relocation. The road work is expected to begin in April of 2021 and be completed in November of 2021. The project includes:

• Paving this two-mile section of gravel road with asphalt

• Placing concrete curbs and gutters

• Installing storm sewers to improve drainage

• Improving the driving sight distance
