QUARTERLY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
August 2020 - November 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/early winter 2020. A landscaping and tree planting phase will follow construction in 2021. Follow I-75 modernization progress on the web at: www.modernize75.com.
2. SANITARY SEWER CLEANING & TELEVSION INSPECTION – SECTIONS 11, 13, 14 & 24
The large diameter trunk line sanitary sewers will be cleaned and televised. The sanitary sewer is accessed from structures located along the sanitary sewer. No excavation or pavement removal is required to complete the work. Work is anticipated to start this fall and be completed prior to winter 2020.
3. WATER MAIN & PAVEMENT REPLACEMENT – NAUGHTON, WHEATON, PIEDMONT & ACACIA
The existing water mains on Naughton, Wheaton, Piedmont and Acacia streets are over 40 years old and have exceeded their service life. This project replaced and upsized 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 is substantially complete. Road replacement followed the water main work and is anticipated to be complete and open to traffic by late fall/early winter 2020. Restoration will follow the roadwork, as weather allows, and final cleanup will be completed in the spring of 2021.
4. SANITARY SEWER – COOLIDGE, NORTH OF SQUARE LAKE – OAKLAND COUNTY
The Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office will construct a new sanitary sewer on the east side of Coolidge, north of Square Lake Road. The route for the new sewer is primarily across the property at 6550 Coolidge that was formally occupied by a green house and connects to the existing sanitary sewer near the Sprague Drain. The sewer will replace an existing 18-20 inch sanitary sewer that is failing due to poor soil conditions. Work started in July. All contract work is anticipated to be complete prior to winter 2020.
5. LOCAL ROAD OVERLAY – SECTION 15, 18 & 22
The following roads are scheduled to receive an asphalt pavement overlay: Valley Vista, Valley Vista Circle, Valley Vista Ct., Big Oak, Evaline, Leetonia, Crestfield, Hanover and Jennings. This project includes milling (grinding off) select areas of the existing pavement and placing a new asphalt pavement surface. Work is anticipated to start in October and be complete prior to winter 2020. Restoration will follow the roadwork, as weather allows, and final cleanup will be completed in the spring of 2021.
