This project is currently being bid through the Michigan Department of Transportation.  Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin towards the end of May.

CAP1808 N. Main Street Resurfacing

11 Mile Road to Gardenia Avenue

This project is scheduled to begin during the first week of May.  The contractor will shift traffic to the east side of the road, with one lane open in each direction.  Access to all businesses will be maintained throughout the project.

CAP1815 Asphalt Resurfacing Improvements

Contractor: AJAX Paving Industries, Inc.

The contractor will be visiting each street in the project over the next couple weeks to locate individual gas services.  They will excavate a small hole to verify the location and depth of the gas services and will then backfill the hole. 
The project is divided into three phases:

CAP1815 Phasing

The contractor plans to begin curb removals and replacements in Phase 1 streets starting the week April 16th.

CAP1835 Road Reconstruction Improvements

Contractor: Hard Rock Concrete, Inc.

Woodland Avenue - Webster Road to Glenwood Road

The contractor will begin pavement removals along the east side of Woodland Avenue starting the week of April 16th.  Driveway approaches will also be removed along the east side of the road and back-filled with stone to allow vehicle access.  Additionally, six trees will be removed throughout the week.  Replacement trees will be planted at the end of the project.
Once the pavement is removed, the new water main will be installed along the east side of the roadway.  Residents will be notified of scheduled water shutoffs with a door hanger, though there are no shutoffs planned for the next couple weeks.

Bonnie View Drive - Lloyd Avenue to Northwood Boulevard

The contractor will begin pavement removals along the east side of Woodland Avenue starting the week of April 16.  After the pavement is removed, the contractor will begin preparing the road base for paving operations.  Residents will be notified via door hanger when driveway approaches will no longer be available.

CAP1505 Concrete Street Repairs

Contractor: Galui Construction Company, Inc.

The contractor will be saw-cutting the project streets starting in May.  Pavement removals and concrete pavement will not begin until late May or early June.  

CAP1822 Non-Motorized Improvements

The city will be installing signage and striping for a north-south bike route through the city.  The bike route begins at Washington Avenue and 10 Mile Road, extends north to Euclid Avenue, then east to N. Main Street, and finally north the city limits.  Where there are currently four lanes of traffic, the street will be reduced to a 3-lane roadway, with one lane of traffic in each direction, a center turn lane, and bicycle lanes on each side of the road.  This project is expected to begin in June.
