City begins $70M 2022 road improvement program to resurface 66 miles of major and residential streets

  • Work to take place along major roads and in neighborhoods across the city

  • Improvements include three commercial corridor streetscapes

  • City contracted projects require 51 percent of work to be performed by Detroit residents

  • Installation of nearly 3,000-speed humps/cushions also planned for 2022


The City of Detroit has begun its 2022 road improvement and construction season with plans to complete $70 million in road resurfacing. This year, the Department of Public Works (DPW) will repave 65 miles of major and residential roads. It also will build three beautiful new streetscapes along key commercial corridors on East Warren, West Warren, and Rosa Parks Boulevard.

Forty miles of local residential streets and 25 miles of major roads will be improved this year. Most residential streets will be paved by city crews, while the major roads will be paved by contractors. All contracts awarded through the city’s procurement process will require most of the work to be performed by Detroit residents.

Some of the major thoroughfares planned for improvements this year include segments of Evergreen, Meyers, Mt. Elliot, Harper, West Vernor, and Oakman. Work is already underway on some projects and weather permitting, the construction season will continue until December. The city also plans $3.1 million in sidewalk replacements that will also take place in conjunction with road projects during the 2022 construction season. Funding for these projects will come from a combination of federal and state transportation funds, as well as road bond funds.

“We are committed to improving the quality of life and creating opportunity for our citizens. In addition to providing needed road repairs, we are also requiring that 51 percent of the work be done by Detroiters so our residents can take part in the opportunities created through our road improvement projects,” said Ron Brundidge.

New streetscapes will be installed on East Warren (Cadieux to Three Mile Drive), Rosa Parks (Grand Boulevard to Atkinson), and West Warren (Southfield to Greenfield). These projects will add new street lighting, landscaping, street furniture, as well as new road pavements. Similar projects along Livernois, W. McNichols, Grand River, and Kercheval have helped spur a revitalization of those commercial corridors.

Here are details of this year’s streetscape projects:

  • East Warren Streetscape East Warren from Three Mile to Cadieux – $7.3 Million. The project includes bike lanes, streetscape improvements, and parking lots and will include the following elements: milling and asphalt overlay, 6-foot wide protected bike lanes, bus islands, drainage structure rehabilitation, hardscape, signage, signal upgrades, pavement markings, site furnishings, ADA accessibility, improved lighting, and landscaping.
  • West Warren Streetscape West Warren from Southfield to Mettetal – $5.6 Million. The project includes a conversion from four (4) travel lanes to three (3), improved safety and organization of on-street parking, replacement of sidewalks, improved pedestrian conditions (curb extensions, new mid-block pedestrian crossings with refuge islands), enhanced transit stops, signage, signal upgrades, pavement markings, site furnishings, ADA accessibility, improved lighting, and landscaping. DPW is coordinating with Wayne County to deliver this project and also extend the resurfacing of W. Warren Avenue to Greenfield Road.
  • Rosa Parks Boulevard (12th Street) Streetscape Rosa Parks between Atkinson and West Grand Blvd. – $9 Million. The project includes bike lanes and streetscape improvements and will include the following elements: cold milling and asphalt overlay, 10-foot-wide two-way protected bike path, bus islands, crossovers, drainage structure rehabilitation, hardscape, signage, signal upgrades, pavement markings, site furnishings, ADA accessibility, improved lighting, and landscaping.

Speed Hump Program Continues

Following up on last year’s expanded program to reduce vehicular speeding on residential streets, this season DPW will continue these efforts by installing up to 3000-speed humps in every city neighborhood in 2022. Since the program began as a pilot in 2018, the city has installed approximately 7,000-speed humps to create safer neighborhoods.

Speed hump installation locations for this year can be found at detroitmi.gov/dpw
