Gravel road improvement projects (GRIP) have taken place on Perry Lake Road near Seymour Lake and on Granger Road near Baldwin, Sashabaw, Perry Lake, and Rattlesnake Lane. These projects consisted of installing fabric or a Geo-Tek grid under the gravel surface in these problem areas to improve the integrity of the road. So far, the results form these projects show a greatly improved surface that has been holding up for several years. The Township plans to do a shared GRIP project on Oakhill west of Sashabaw in the summer of 2016 with Independence Township.
In 2009, the Wolf Road approach to Ortonville Road project was completed. The increased pavement and improved drainage allows for safer access to M-15.
Brandon Township has been using tri-party funds to participate in the Road Commission for Oakland County secondary road re-graveling program on an annual basis since 2000. Over 60 miles of Township roads have benefited from this program. Recently, funds have become available to allow the Road Commission to add much needed gravel to the primary roads too.
Brandon Township is participating in the RCOC secondary road chloride program during May through September. The heavier traveled secondary roads receive 5 applications per year while the less traveled secondary roads receive 4 applications per year.
Paving projects are in the Federal Aid funding queue. Sashabaw between Sherwood and Granger is set to be paved in 2019. Oakhill between M-15 and Ellis Road is a shared project with Independence and is scheduled for 2023 paving.
The Road Commission has specific regulations for decorative street name signs. There have been recent changes to help improve safety by making street signs easier for motorist to read. REGULATIONS
