Latest News


Two paving projects are in the Federal Aid funding queue. Sashabaw between Sherwood and Granger is set to be paved in 2019. Construction should begin in June. Oakhill between M-15 and Ellis Road is a shared project with Independence and is scheduled for 2025 paving.

Beginning in 2013,  a Geo-Tek grid was installed under parts of the gravel surface on Perry Lake Road north of Seymour Lake, Oakhill west of Sashabaw, and on Granger Road near Baldwin, Sashabaw, Perry Lake, and Rattlesnake Lane to improve the integrity of these roads. Unfortunately, the Geo-Tek grid is now working its way to the surface and needs to be repaired in certain areas. Please call the Supervisor's office at (248 627-4918) if you see Geo-Tek grid exposed on your road.

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. Lately however, tri-party funds are being saved for the Sashabaw paving project and the Township is spending General Fund dollars to pay for limited re-gravel projects.

Brandon Township participates in the Road Commission for Oakland County's secondary road chloriding program during the months of May through September. The heavier traveled secondary roads receive 5 applications per year while the less traveled secondary roads receive 4 applications per year.



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
