PONTIAC (WWJ) – The unseasonably warm weather has led to an unexpected – yet welcome – savings of about $1.5 million for the Road Commission for Oakland County.

A county spokesman says less snow over the past five months is largely responsible for the tremendous savings. As a result, the county was able to save money on both salt and employee overtime.

That must help with the county’s ambitious plans for road work this spring. The Road Commission for Oakland County  plans to construct more than $34 million worth of road projects during the 2012 construction season.

This year’s list is composed of 18 projects, including road widenings, reconstructions, gravel road pavings and bridge replacements. Get the total list of projects here.
