QUARTERLY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
May 2020 - August 2020
1. INTERSTATE RECONSTRUCTION – I-75, 13 MILE TO COOLIDGE
The I-75 Modernization Project, from north of 13 Mile to north of Coolidge Highway will widen and reconstruct the freeway pavement, interchanges and bridges. The project includes the addition of one lane in each direction by enclosing the median; drainage and aesthetic improvements; and noise walls where they meet Federal/State criteria. All traffic has been shifted to the new pavement on the northbound side to allow for work on the southbound side. All lanes of I-75, from 13 Mile to Coolidge are anticipated to be complete and open to traffic by late fall 2020. A landscaping and tree planting phase will follow construction in 2021.

2. MAJOR ROAD WIDENING AND RECONSTRUCTION – JOHN R, LONG LAKE TO SOUTH BOULEVARD
John R has been widened and reconstructed to a new 3-lane asphalt pavement with deceleration lanes at side streets between Long Lake and South Boulevard. Restoration and final project cleanup will take place, as necessary, in the spring and summer of 2020.
3. WATER MAIN & PAVEMENT REPLACEMENT – NAUGHTON, WHEATON, PIEDMONT & ACACIA
The existing water main and pavement on Naughton, Wheaton, Piedmont and Acacia streets are over 40 years old and have exceeded their service life. This project will replace and upsize these mains to upgrade the water and fire protection in this industrial area, while eliminating costly water main breaks that are more common with older water mains. The water main work started in January and is anticipated to be substantially complete by mid-summer. Road replacement will follow and last into the fall. Final cleanup and restoration will follow and all contract work is anticipated to be complete prior to winter 2020.
4. SANITARY SEWER – WILLOWGROVE, TREVINO TO SQUARE LAKE
A new sanitary sewer will be constructed on the east side of Willowgrove from Trevino to Square Lake. The master plan sewer for this area was recently extended from Hopedale through the Oak Forest 4 site condominium project and provides the outlet for this new sanitary sewer. The construction of this sanitary sewer will provide service to properties along Willowgrove that are currently serviced by septic systems. The project will also include storm sewer improvements for drainage. Construction started in February and be substantially complete by late summer. The existing gravel road will be realigned and a new gravel surface will be placed as the final road surface. Final cleanup and restoration will follow and all contract work is anticipated to be complete prior to winter 2020.

6. INDUSTRIAL ROAD CONCRETE PAVEMENT REPLACEMENT – NORTHFIELD PKWY, WHITFIELD TO COOLIDGE

The sewer will replace an existing 18-20 inch sanitary sewer that is failing due to poor soil conditions. Work is anticipated to start in late May and all contract work is anticipated to be complete prior to winter 2020.
