Construction Update
The Old Woodward Reconstruction project is  60  percent complete.  Contractors have completed the installation of the concrete roadway and all of the water and sewer work  on North Old Woodward.  It is necessary to keep Maple closed to car traffic during the upcoming landscape phase so pedestrians can safely navigate the new temporary sidewalk on the roadway. The City thanks you for your patience and understanding as it undertakes the complex excavation and landscape phase of the project in the safest and most efficient manner possible.
