Novi - Better Roads Ahead

In August 2012, Novi citizens overwhelmingly passed a road millage allowing for more than $5 million to be used in annual road and pathway investments. Funds will be used to maintain and improve neighborhood (subdivision/ side streets) and major municipal roadways (mile roads, Beck Road, etc.), and to make sidewalk and pathway connections.

The City uses a formal asset management program that categorizes roads based on a Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating system (PASER). Roads in poor condition are candidates for reconstruction or rehabilitation. Those in fair condition receive capital preventive maintenance, while roads in good condition are candidates for routine maintenance work. The lowest rated roads in each of these categories are generally addressed first.
