Road Jurisdiction

All the streets in Royal Oak are owned and maintained by one of three entities:

  • City of Royal Oak
  • Oakland County
  • State of Michigan

Each entity is responsible for the maintenance of the roads they have jurisdiction over. This includes general maintenance like pot hole patching, traffic signals and signage, speed limits, major road improvements, bicycle route implementation and road diets.
