Wayne County’s Department of Public Services announced its list of capital improvement projects for the 2018 season. The County will start 32 road construction projects and conduct 34 maintenance projects covering primary and local roads, totaling just under $60 million.
Major work outlined includes the resurfacing of West Outer Drive in Detroit from McNichols to Schaefer, resurfacing on Warren Road at Beck and Canton Center and a concrete pavement reconstruction job at Sibley Road at Telegraph to Racho roads. Motorists will be alerted of each road improvement project with new stationed signage and the full list on the Wayne County website.
“It’s been a tough and frustrating winter, particularly for motorists. Now that temperatures are starting to warm, we are eager to get construction season projects underway to improve our roads and parks,” said Beverly Watts, Wayne County Department of Public Services Director. “We will continue to work hard and maximize the dollars provided to improve our county’s infrastructure.”
