What's Happening Now...
Road, Sidewalk and Pathway Construction  
 
The City of Novi prides itself on maintaining open lines of communication and keeping community members apprised of the latest in road and  non-motorized construction projects. 

The following information is intended to provide an overview of current projects.

Please note: All completion dates are merely estimates. Projects could extend beyond those dates due to unforeseen issues with the project and inclement weather.

The contractor has completed all of the main-line concrete pours on Novi Road and 12 Mile Road . They are awaiting cure strength before allowing traffic on the new concrete. Due to issues with the subcontractor, it will not be until next week for the road to reopen. Sidewalks still need to be poured as well as sealing the joints on the road.
Estimated completion date: September 13, 2019
RCOC is having a contractor finish the balance of concrete panel work remaining from the 2018 project which concentrated on the intersection of 12 Mile and Meadowbrook Road. The work is expected to begin after the completion of the 12 Mile and Novi Road intersection.
Estimated completion date: September 14, 2019

RCOC will be closing Haggerty Road on Sept. 23. Advanced warning signs and detour signs will be placed a week prior to closing, announcing the closure. The project calls for  replacing the existing culverts at two Seeley Drain crossings of Haggerty Road, north of 13 Mile Road and MacKenzie Drive. While under construction, Haggerty Road will be closed at the culvert locations.
Estimated completion date: September 27, 2019

Guilford Road is now open to traffic. The plan was to start to dig the trench and form the driveways on Thursday, starting on the south side of the road. Once the sump discharge storm line along the back of curb is installed the driveway aprons will be poured back. New concrete was also being poured on the first side of Bennington Drive this week.
Estimated completion date: November 1, 2019


The base course of asphalt is down on Warrington Court and the first half of Warrington Drive. Removals are underway on  the second side of Warrington Drive for paving early next week. Crews are also headed to Edinborough Lane and Inverness Court to begin concrete curb removals and replacements.
Estimated completion date: November 1, 2019 

All the roads are now open in Whispering Meadows and over the next few weeks crews will be performing restoration and irrigation repair work. Once those streets are wrapped up, some panel and intersection work may take place on Cranbrooke Drive between 10 Mile and Village Wood roads.
Estimated completion date: November 1, 2019


The contractor is now complete with all the steel sheeting wall for the project. A majority of the storm sewer has been installed. The contractor is now forming and pouring sections of the concrete wall along the backside of the sheet piling. This work will take several months. The large, four-sided, box culvert for the Middle Rouge River is planned to be set this week.
Estimated completion date: November 1, 2019

The contractor has closed Flint Street (gravel portion), from Grand River to Novi Road. A bulk of the earthwork and grading will take place over the next few weeks. Some work may be delayed due to DTE utility pole relocation.
Estimated completion date: December 1, 2019

The contractor set up the Cabot and Lewis lane closures on Thursday, with milling of the existing concrete to take place on Friday and Saturday. Once milling is complete, the contractor expects a week of joint repairs before the first lift of asphalt can be placed.
Estimated completion date: October 15, 2019

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. Area residents and motorists need to use caution when driving in these areas. Construction of the storm sewer network at Nine Mile and Garfield Roads is now complete. Open cut sections, west of Garfield, have begun as well. 
Estimated completion date: January 27, 2020

The City will be doing preventative maintenance on three roadway bridges located on West Park Drive, between 12 Mile and West Road; Meadowbrook Road, between Chattman Drive and Nine Mile Road; and Cranbrooke Drive, between 10 Mile and Village Wood Road. Construction will range from basic maintenance and full concrete slab replacement. Work has started on the West Park Drive bridge and is progressing well which could mean an earlier reopening.
Estimated completion date: November 1, 2019

The contractor has completed paving and striping of the southbound Haggerty Road right turn lane. The 14 Mile and Haggerty intersection was fully reopened to traffic on August 23. Underground crews are on-site installing new conduit for the eventual mast arm traffic signals. Restoration will be forthcoming over the next couple weeks. Crews will also be mobilizing to the Beck Road/Pontiac Trail intersection early next week to begin installing new sidewalks, pedestrian push buttons and traffic signal conduits.
Estimated completion date: April 1, 2020


A few minor punch list items need to be finished before the trail "officially" opens to the public. The flashing beacons to help pedestrians cross 10 Mile Road are operational. The goal is to open the trail fully on Friday.
Estimated completion date: Early September 2019

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.
