December 21, 2017 - Harvard Road Construction Project
2018 City of Berkley Sewer Lining
Harvard Road Reconstruction & Water Main Replacement (Woodward to Cass)
On December 21, 2017, Marine City started planting new trees on Harvard between Woodward and Cass.
The City of Berkley processed all of the tree replacement order forms that residents submitted with the goal of creating a diverse tree canopy. This includes feedback from residents who specifically did not want a tree. If a form was not submitted for a particular address, the city has made an effort to plant a new tree.
All new trees will be planted in the public right-of-way, between the sidewalk and the curb. The location of the tree was based on a few factors, including existing underground utilities. Any resident that requested a tree in a location where one could not be planted due to a conflict was previously notified.
The city picks this time of the year to plant trees in order to take advantage of a few benefits that greatly increase the chances that these trees will be successful in their new location. After the fall season, trees go into a dormant stage for the winter months where they are less prone to transplant shock and can more easily adjust the to their new conditions in the spring.
The trees are also more successful because they are already in place for the rainy months of spring/early summer so they are less dependent on homeowners watering them to survive. However, even if all that fails, we are protected by a one-year warranty from the nursery where we purchase the trees.
We appreciate your continued cooperation and look forward to the new trees. Feel free to contact the Department of Public Works with any questions at (248) 658-3590.

2018 Sewer Lining
The City of Berkley has contracted with LiquiForce Services Inc. to structurally line approximately 5,500 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 Wakefield, Catalpa, 12 Mile Road, Coolidge Highway, Buckingham, Thomas, Griffith, Kenmore, Wiltshire, Franklin, and Brookline. Click here to view a map of exact locations.
The first phase (cleaning & preparation) is scheduled to start the week of April 2. Contingent upon weather, the project is expected to be complete by June 4.
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.
