Road construction season is officially here! Be sure to check out the video above that previews the work we have planned for 2020 in Novi. As always, reach out with any questions and join us in our "2020 Novi Road Construction" Facebook group.
This program kicks off next week on Bedford Drive from Center to Galway.
Traffic on Bedford Drive will be southbound ONLY & northbound traffic will be detoured around the construction zone back to Center Street & Bedford Drive.
Motorists should expect longer delays while daytime work progresses. Residents in the work zone, on the side being worked on, may not have access to their driveways until the concrete has been poured and cured.
This program kicks off next week in the Greenwood Oaks Subdivision.
The streets include: Cider Mill Boulevard, Graham Lane, Greenwich Drive, Holyoke Court/Lane, Nantucket Drive & Salem Court.
All construction will be performed half-width at a time & no detours are necessary. Traffic flow will be maintained under flag control.
Cranbrooke Drive Reconstruction
The City will be reconstructing Cranbrooke Drive from 10 Mile Road to Village Wood Road starting in July.
Traffic on Cranbrooke will be northbound ONLY throughout the duration of the project. The detour for southbound Cranbrooke Drive will be west on 10 Mile Road to Haggerty Road, southbound to Nine Mile Road, then, westbound to Cranbrooke Drive. Access to all cross streets on Cranbrooke will be maintained except for specific times of paving.
Concrete Repair Program
The contractor has completed pouring new concrete on the first halves of Pennington Lane and Pennington Court in the Bristol Bluffs subdivision. The first half of Morgan Creek Court has also been removed and awaiting concrete to be poured back. As soon as these areas obtain sufficient cure strength, those first sides will be reopened and the contractor will start removing the second halves.
Some projects on major roads in Novi are also slated for this summer.
The Novi Road bridge & pathway over I-96 will receive some preventative maintenance starting in July. During construction, the two outer southbound lanes of Novi Road will be closed. Therefore, the southbound Novi Road ramp to eastbound I-96 will also be closed.
Preventative maintenance work on the Grand River Avenue bridge between Novi & Taft roads starts today. At least one lane of traffic in both directions will be open at all times.
The Crescent Boulevard Extension from Novi Road to Grand River is nearing completion as we wait for DTE to move the last of the power poles that are in the way of the final concrete pour on the Industrial Spur. We hope to have this completed by August.
