· Miles of roads to be improved this year a 35 percent increase over last three-year average

· Passage of state road funding legislation in 2015 provides for more improvements in more neighborhoods

The City of Detroit will spend $63 million this year to resurface 100 miles of rough streets, according to the city’s Director of Public Works, Ron Brundidge. The plan calls for resurfacing 57 miles of residential neighborhood streets and paving 43 miles of major roads this construction season. In addition, bridge improvement and projects designed to enhance existing roadways will also be implemented in 2017.

Major streets being paved this year include sections of Evergreen, Cass, Hubbell, Mack, E. 7 Mile, Whittier, and Joy Road. Approximately $4 million of the program will be spent on road enhancements, such as installing new bike paths, and rehabilitating the Bagley Street Bridge, east of 16th street, in southwest Detroit.

The resurfacing of 100 miles of streets in 2017 reflects a continuous upward trend of road improvement projects since 2014, and it illustrates the City’s commitment to quality infrastructure in all city neighborhoods. Here is a breakdown of City of Detroit road improvements over the past several years:

· 2017: $63M to pave 43 miles of major roads and 57 miles of residential streets

· 2016: $53.5M to pave 19 miles of major roads and 53 miles of residential streets

· 2015: $36M to pave 15 miles of major roads and 44 miles of residential streets

· 2014: $37M to pave 16 miles of major roads and 46 miles of residential streets

“Over the last three years, we have paved an average of 64 miles each year,” said Brundidge. “With the passage of the 2015 transportation funding bill in Lansing, we have more resources available to fix more roads in more neighborhoods.”

The additional funding also has allowed for improved street maintenance. Last week, the city re-launched its residential street sweeping program after a seven-year absence. The return of this popular service, including the purchase of several new sweepers, also was made possible because of the city’s larger allotment of state road funds.

Below is a complete list of planned road repairs by City Council District. For additional information visit the City’s Web site at http://www.detroitmi.gov/PublicWorks.
