Tienken Road Condition

Potholes on Tienken Road

Does anyone know when the city/county/state (I don’t know who owns the road) fills in the potholes on Tienken Road, just east of the intersection with Adams Road? As of yesterday, nothing had been done! The potholes multiply and get larger and deeper by the day. In some places they are spread across the road, there is no way to avoid them. What is the hold up?

Hi, Hugh: Here is a story from two weeks ago after the last thaw that left Tienken full of potholes: http://patch.com/A-14f4 Basically, Tienken is maintained by the Road Commission for Oakland County; the story tells you how you can report potholes.

Where are all the political movers and shakers who constantly do blogs and/or leave comments.. Why can they not stand up and do something for all of us.. This road is an embarrassment for Rochester Hills.. I don't care who the responsible activity is.. The facts is that Tienken Rd is in Rochester Hills..May be the Patch can help as well.. Anyway, thanks Kristin to bring this back to the front page...

Hugo Ritzenthaler... thanks for the post This year the Road Commission for Oakland County going to do a major rebuild of the mile road. Suggestion for the Road Commission; skip building the expensive new roundabout at Tienken and Livernois... and rebuild the road all the way to Adams. Let's Propose a New Tienken Parkway http://rochester.patch.com/blog_posts/lets-propose-a-new-tienken-parkway Tienken Road Improvements http://www.rochesterhills.org/index.aspx?NID=487

Scot, I wish your plan was their plan. I foresee the roundabout, shaved down hill, removal of homes and businesses west of Rochester Road and the removal of all the trees east of Tienken with a new road and sidewalks at the door steps of those on the south side in the coming future. They are still following the old mantra of bigger roads for more cars. After it is all said and done future generations might look back and wonder why they did what they did.

I hope the new roundabout at Livernois & Tienken isn't as confusing and dangerous as the one at Livernois & Hamlin. At that one you take your life in your hands. I travel Maple Rd.and their are roundabouts at Drake and Farmington Rds. and neither are as bad as the Hamlin one.
