Exterior improvements are wrapping up at Oakland Community College’s Royal Oak campus.
The four exterior entrance ways couldn’t all be done at the same time, since the building was continuously used for classes; hence the project’s November-to-present timeline. Work on the fourth entrance at the corner of Lincoln and Washington is almost done and should be completely wrapped up by this November, says OCC spokesman George Cartsonis.
The $1.5 million project also includes outdoor lighting and landscaping, and was funded through the college’s property tax millage, earmarked for building restorations, technology upgrades, scholarships and development of new academic programs. “It has dressed up the entrances, and makes the campus even more welcoming than it was before,” Cartsonis says.
