City streets slated for repair in the 2019 construction season
Posted on 02/15/2019
Some streets will be repaired using a mill and overlay fix.The City of Northville has identified the streets to be repaired and reconstructed in the 2019 construction season, following last fall’s voter approval of $3 million in bonds directed toward street improvements over a 10-year period.

The streets (listed below) include work on two major thoroughfares: Baseline Road and Taft; and about a dozen neighborhood streets. The estimated cost for this year’s construction is approximately $2 million, funded largely by the street bonds and the water and sewer operations fund.

City officials worked with the Engineering firm Fleis and VandenBrink to identify which roads should take priority this year. The selection was based on the current condition of the streets, using visual inspection and software mapping; the overall condition of the streetway network (OCI); and other related aspects, such as traffic flow, having alternative routes and coordinating scheduled repairs by utilities.

“There are a lot of factors that are impacted by road reconstruction,” said DPW Director Loyd Cureton. “It was really important to coordinate repairs with utilities so a new road doesn’t get torn up within a few years due to scheduled repairs on water mains and sewer lines.”

Engineering design should be completed this spring, and will be reviewed by City Council prior to the start of construction. This list is subject to change, due to new factors that may impact the plan. Upon completion of this segment of street repair/reconstruction, the average City-wide PASER rating will increase from 4.57 to 5.22.
