The $1.8 million project will to resurface Mack, between Harvard to Moross, will be funded by the Wayne County Federal Aid Committee and the Detroit Federal Aid Committee to improve the road which borders Detroit, Grosse Pointe Farms and Grosse Pointe City. 

“It’s a long anticipated project,” said Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, in a release. “We are pleased to partner with the city of Detroit in moving this road improvement forward.”

The project will include:

  • Milling existing asphalt pavement;
  • Repairing existing concrete based pavement;
  • Resurfacing with 3 ½ inches of hot mix asphalt;
  • Sidewalks will be made ADA compliant;
  • New traffic signals at Cadieux and Rivard.

The project is scheduled to begin this summer, and will be completed in the fall according to a release. Traffic will be maintained in each direction on Mack through the 1.71 mile construction zone.

That is going to be a long project. I couldn't imagine repairing and surfacing a 1.71 mile surface. It's good that this is happening though. The people of Detroit should be thrilled with the new roads. http://www.pebbleworkspoolsurfacing.com
