Better Roads Ahead
Special Construction Notice - May 20, 2022
As some of you may have noticed, the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has begun their concrete panel replacement program on Grand River Avenue, between Taft and Wixom Roads, today. The RCOC’s contractor, Cipparrone Contracting, Inc. currently has both the outside, EB and WB Grand River Avenue lanes closed for saw-cutting. Next week, the contractor will be removing the discrete, individual panels. The week following, the contractor will begin pouring back those panels. Once done, the contractor will shift traffic to the recently completed, outside lanes while closing the turn and inside lanes for the same construction treatment as described above. Motorists will likely see longer periods of no work which is to allow time for the freshly poured concrete to cure to sufficient reopening strength. Motorists should also expect longer delays while crews are working. Please use caution and lessen your speeds through the work zone(s).
In February 2021, the Novi Roads Committee (formed in December 2019) presented a Road Report to City Council that focused on developing a plan to prioritize road projects to maintain safety, improve road conditions and traffic flow, and explore funding opportunities. The Road Report will be used as a benchmarking document for future road improvements.
In general, Novi has about $11 million of funds dedicated to the roads per year. The City expends between $2-3 million for maintenance, leaving $7-9 million targeted for capital expenditures for road improvements and non-motorized projects. Novi driver experience and satisfaction are critical, and working with other agencies to initiate, fund, and execute projects in Novi has been a priority.
There is no singular design prescription for road construction and each project is unique in community context. Projects are prioritized in a consistently changing landscape of revenue/budget/funding sources, development and constructability, and any other capital improvements that align with road construction.
