Good news for Oxford Township MI residents who live and drive on those gravel roads, their daily rides are about to get a whole lot smoother. Last week, the township board voted 5 - 1 to allocate its $55,443 in Tri-Party Program funds toward the purchase of gravel to spread on approximately 5.8 miles of local roads.
The township's road committee met with a superintendent with the county road commission, and determined the following gravel roads needed a fresh coat of stone:
W. Drahner Rd, 1.5 miles
Stanton Rd, 0.5 miles
Coats Rd, 3.1 miles
Dunlap Rd, 0.7 miles
Tri-Party funds are a split between 3 government entities - municipalities, Oakland County and the county road commission. Oxford Township's portion of these funds amounts to $18,481. The Levy Corporation, which owns the American Aggregates gravel mining operation, has agreed to match the amount of material the township purchases and donate it to the community.
