Shelby Township residents can dispose of curbside yard waste until Dec. 12-16.
Because of a warmer than usual fall, Shelby Township residents will be able to dispose of yard waste for curbside pickup until the week of Dec. 12-16. Yard waste is collected on the same day of the week that trash and recycling is collected.

Per the township's waste hauling vendor, GFL Environmental, yard waste is defined as leaves, lawn cuttings, and shrub and tree trimmings and the like.

Residents should place yard waste into biodegradable bags or containers of 35 gallons or less. GFL enforces a weight limit of 50 pounds. Brush and limbs greater than 2 inches in diameter must be in bundles not longer than 4 feet in length, and not exceeding a total of 18 inches in diameter, or more than 50 pounds.

Dequindre, West Utica roads detour to begin Sept. 9
The Road Commission for Oakland County is overseeing a project to reconstruct Dequindre Road between Burningbush Road and West Utica Road.

The project includes storm drainage and widening of portions of the road resulting in a five-lane concrete reconstruction the length of the entire project.

The project is managed by the RCOC with coordination from the Macomb County Department of Roads, Rochester Hills, Shelby Township, Sterling Heights and Troy. Construction is expected to be completed by fall of 2016 with some restoration work to be completed in 2017. The total cost of the project is $7.7 million, which is offset with $6.2 million in federal funding.

Early plans call for the road to be constructed in two main stages. In the first stage, crews will construct the east side of Dequindre Road and the south side of South Blvd.

The second stage will see construction on the west side of Dequindre Road and the north side of South Blvd. Dequindre Road will be open to traffic for the entirety of the project as three lanes -- one lane in each direction and a center left turn lane -- will be maintained throughout the project.

Along with the reconstruction and widening, a redesign of the intersection Dequindre and West Utica roads is planned as Meliville Road in Rochester Hills will be aligned with West Utica Road with a new traffic signal installed at that location.

Because it lies on a county border, Dequindre Road is maintained by the MCDR between 8 Mile to 14 Mile roads and 26 Mile and Bordman roads. The RCOC manages Dequindre Road between 14 Mile to 26 Mile roads.
