Roads & Streets

Major and Local Street Construction

The Department of Public Works maintains approximately 21 miles of major streets and 54 miles of local streets within the City. 

Much of the funding for street construction come from gas taxes collected by the State of Michigan and redistributed to local governments. Funding that has been restricted to the major and local streets funds will be used for street maintenance purposes only.

2019 Streets & Roads Projects

Each year, the City takes on a series of planned local street and road updates, including resurfacing work, infrastructure updates, and safety installations. To find out whether your street will be impacted by summer or fall projects, visit the interactive GIS 2019 Proposed Road Repaving and Construction map.
