The City of Novi will complete the 'ring-road' by installing a new concrete box-span culvert near Novi Road for the Middle Rouge River crossing; construct a new concrete curb and gutter and asphalt roadway over the top of the existing Flint Street; add some on-street parking along the south side of the road; install a new 10-foot pathway along the north side; install a new 6-foot sidewalk along the south side; and construct new water main, sanitary and storm sewer utilities for future development. No closures or detours are expected for the utility or roadway construction, but a short term closure is expected at the beginning of the project to install the new concrete box span culvert. The contractor is expected to begin work on Monday, July 29, but may be delayed due to DTE utility pole relocation.

The contractor has several shafts constructed for proposed sanitary manholes along Nine Mile which has choked the roadway down to one lane in several areas.

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.
