12 Mile Sidewalk and Street Light Replacement Project - UPDATE (02/16/17)

This is a follow up to the October 25, 2016 announcement regarding the City of Berkley’s proposed sidewalk replacement project on 12 Mile Road from Greenfield to Tyler.

Recently, the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) informed city officials that Berkley will receive federal road funding in 2020. The funds would be used to resurface 12 Mile Road from Greenfield to Coolidge and upgrade sidewalk ramps for ADA compliance and the RCOC will handle all aspects of the project, from inception to completion, tentatively schedule to begin in 2020.

To avoid any unnecessary duplication of work and expense, the City of Berkley will postpone its sidewalk replacement until the RCOC completes the resurfacing and sidewalk ramp upgrades. In the interim, the city will continue to work with DTE on the street light replacement process.

Property and business owners along 12 Mile between Greenfield and Coolidge will be notified as developments occur. Project updates will also be posted on the city’s website: www.berkleymich.org

2017 Sewer Lining Program

The City of Berkley has contracted with LiquiForce Services Inc. to structurally line approximately 5,000 linear feet of public sewer. This contract is part of a yearly program to rehabilitate City lines using cured-in-place pipeline technology (little to no excavation). Proposed locations include segments on Harvard, Sunnyknoll, Oxford, Wiltshire, Gardner, Buckingham, Webster and Henley. Click here to view map of locations.

The first phase (cleaning & preparation) is scheduled to start on Monday, January 30. Contingent upon weather, the project is expected to be complete by May 2017.

As part of the lining process, various fire hydrants will be utilized. During this time residents may notice cloudy water. This temporary condition is not unusual and will clear up once flows have moderated.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the DPW at 248-658-3490.

Harvard Road Project (Woodward to Cass) Update

UPDATE (11/7/16): the Department of Public Works, along with city engineers, conducted a walkthrough of the project with residents along Harvard, between Cass & Woodward on November 5, 2016. Click here to view the walkthrough agenda. If you would like to stay up to date on the project via email, please send an email to communications@berkleymich.net with "Harvard Road Project Updates" in the Subject field.

In July of 2016, City Council approved a design services contract for a water main replacement and road reconstruction project on Harvard Road from Woodward to Cass. The design phase has started and includes several components such as coordination with third-party utilities, topographic survey and other actions necessary to develop the plans and specifications required for permits and public bidding.

The scope of this project includes the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt road surface, new concrete curb and gutter, driveway approaches, sidewalk, drainage structures, tree replacements and new 8” public water mains.

By January 2017, the design phase (final plans and permits) should be complete and public bidding will occur shortly thereafter. Construction is tentatively scheduled to start in spring of 2017. While still very early in the process, the estimated total project costs are $2.3 million. The City Water Fund and Major Streets Fund will subsidize these improvements.

As you may know, homeowners are responsible for the entire sewer lead from the home to the City sewer on the north side of Harvard (including the connection). All residents in the area are encouraged to address any private sewer repairs before construction starts in 2017. By doing so, the cost of these repairs may be significantly lower as opposed to after the roadway is repaved. Contact a licensed plumber for details and note many plumbers can provide a video of the lead to assess condition.
