Example of rehabilitated street using discrete panel replacements and partial depth joint repair.
For several years, the City Council has made it a primary goal to invest annually in neighborhood streets to maintain the city’s local road network. To implement this goal, the City selects several residential streets to be addressed based on an evaluation of the pavement condition using PASER ratings, field observations by staff, and resident concerns. Please refer to the Pavement Condition Asset Management web page for additional information on PASER ratings and Asset Management.
The 2017 Neighborhood Road Program will implement the City’s Asset Management approach for pavements that was established in 2009 and is explained in detail at the above link. The asset management program stresses the importance of using preventative maintenance to preserve good quality roads using low-cost rehabilitation techniques, rather than allowing the roads to deteriorate to a point that requires reconstruction involving much more effort at a higher cost. Roads that have deteriorated significantly are addressed with rehabilitation methods such as overlays, panel replacements, and joint repairs to allow more efficient application of available road funds to maximize the number of neighborhood streets that can be included each year in the program.
The 2017 Neighborhood Road Program will include the rehabilitation of the roads listed below. Repair techniques to be implemented include:
- partial-depth mill and overlay of asphalt
- concrete panel replacement (discrete replacement of single or multiple concrete slabs)
- joint repair (removal and replacement of failed concrete joints)
- full-depth and partial-depth reconstruction
- sealing cracks and joints to preserve the pavement
- Use of pavement interlayers to help resist reflective cracking
The map below shows the streets that are being designed for completion in 2017.

The City of Novi completed the road reconstruction of Crescent Boulevard from Novi Road to Town Center Drive in the fall of 2016. Due to weather conditions, the final restoration of the project could not be completed until the Spring of 2017. No detours will be necessary for this work. Toebe Construction is nearly complete with the finish grading and topsoiling. Tree/shrub plantings are also underway. Irrigation repairs and replacements will follow once the preceeding work is complete.
