Neighborhood road work continues in city

Work is under way on road sand streets throughout the City of Northville.
Currently, work is being completed on North Rogers and West Cady where reconstruction of the water main and sanitary sewer is being completed.

In addition, Nagel Paving workers will mill and overlay Baseline Road from North Center to Novi Street, Coldspring from Coldspring Drive to McDonald Drive  and shrrie Lane, from Jeffery Drive to Hillridge Street.
A full reconstruction of Stanstead from Battleford Lane to Elmsmere Drive and Summerside, from Battleford Land to Elmsmere Drive.
Employees from Bidigare Contractors of Plymouth Township will be working on the 2020 Water Main Replacement program on five streets: North Rogers from Potomac Street. to West Main; High Street from Randolph to West Dunlap; West Cady Street from South Wing to South Rogers; Grace Street from Maplewood to Baseline Road and Grace Court from Maplewood to the dead end. 
The Department of Public Works and the city engineering consultants, Fleis & VandenBrink, will have personnel on site to manage these projects, according to officials.
 Despite the late start of construction due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the two construction companies are able to start on major projects while home owners are still staying home and there's reduced traffic on the roads, they added.
 “We understand construction may interfere with our residents' daily activities and, in all road and utility construction projects, we do our best to ensure as little down time and inconvenience as possible,” said DPW Director Loyd Cureton.
During road construction, street parking is not permitted. Hours of work are typically from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 
 Updates on road construction will be posted regularly on Fleis & VandenBrink's information portal. Information can also be accessed from the DPW web page for road construction.
This construction work is the result of voter approval in 2018 of the issuance of $3,050,000 in bonds, paid for over 10 years to finance street improvements, according to city reports.
