City of Detroit underway with $58 million effort to resurface 88 miles of roadway in 2018

posted on

The City of Detroit is now underway with a $58 million program this year to repave 88 miles of roads neighborhoods across the city, according to Department of Public Works Director, Ron Brundidge.  Some of the major thoroughfares being resurfaced this year include segments of Joy Road, Russell, Fenkell, Cadieux, McGraw, and E. McNichols. 

In addition to the resurfacing 58 miles of residential streets and 30 miles of major thoroughfares, the City will rehabilitate the dilapidated Bagley Street Bridge near 16th Street in Mexicantown and the West Parkway Culvert in Rouge Park this year at a combined cost of $3 million.  A portion of West Parkway has been closed for the past two years due to the condition of the culvert, which spans a branch of the Rouge River.  When the project is completed, the road will be reopened to traffic.

A major portion of this year’s road improvement program will come from bond funds approved last year for improvements to several of the City’s major commercial corridors.  Of the $58 million program, $17 million will be used this year to resurface 17 miles of major roads.  An additional $17 million in bond funds will be used to replace broken sidewalks alongside the road projects, Brundidge added.

51% Detroit workforce required on contracted road projects

Consistent with the city’s requirement that major economic development projects hire a majority of construction workers from within the City of Detroit, the City is also requiring the same of itself.  While residential street paving is done by city workers, many major thoroughfares are paved by private companies.  Last year, the city’s road paving contractors hired 54.5% of their workforce from within Detroit.

“We want to see Detroiters rebuilding Detroit, and we have a lot of opportunity with this year’s road construction program,” said Brundidge.

Below is a complete list of planned road repairs by City Council District. For additional information visit the City’s Web site at http://www.detroitmi.gov/PublicWorks.
