Crews grabbed their hard hats Monday morning and headed to Royal Oak.

Two sore spots with Royal Oak Patch readers had crews on the scene Monday morning working to correct problems.

The Royal Oak City Engineering Department confirmed permits were issued to close the sidewalks on the northwest corner of 11 Mile Road and Main Street so that crews can begin making corrections to sagging balconies and other issues at 111 N. Main St.

Crews are also at the intersection of 12 Mile and Rochester roads installing traffic signal heads. 

On Sept. 26, a truck bumped a pole at the northeast corner of the intersection in front of the CVS pharmacy that brought the traffic lights crashing to the ground.

The installation, which includes all the wiring to be redone, is expected to take a couple of day to complete, according to City Engineer Matt Callahan.

I believe they are replacing the old wooden balcony with new wood?? I thought I heard that they cheated the first time with wood instead of steel as the original blueprints stated??? Are we going to have the same problem again in the future??? I hope they have insurance!!! I saw that someone already moved out of there and is available! NO way! Not me! :-)

This same CVS got hit by a car again. It hit the building this time. I also saw tire tracks in the snow where a car just missed the pole that was just replaced on 12 and Rochester! I think they need pole protection or barriers around there or something like that!
