Berkley Annual Sewer Lining Program
Each year, the City has been lining the sewer system in order to maintain its structural integrity, as well as, extend the service life of the pipe network.
In January 2019, City Council awarded a five-year bid contract to LiquiForce/Granite to perform this work.
Project Scope and Overview
Pipe candidates for lining are determined each year based on rating criteria from the regular sewer inspections.
Granite will be notifying impacted residents via hand-delivered notices with contact information for the project.
Project Start: Early Spring 2021
Project Completion: Early Summer 2021

Berkley City-wide Sidewalk Replacement Program
The City of Berkley has begun the process for its City-wide Sidewalk Replacement Program beginning in Fall 2020. This program will be taking a new approach where it will run in five-year cycles rather than carrying out replacements every 15 years as it had been done in the past. All future Sidewalk Replacement Program locations, timelines, and budgets will be determined following the completion of the pilot program.
The Scope of the Pilot Program is as follows:
- The replacement of sidewalk slabs (whether they are the result of tree root disturbance or not) within the southwest section of the City bordered by Greenfield and Coolidge to the west and east, respectively, and 11 Mile Road and Catalpa to the south and north, respectively.
- This initial program includes those concrete slabs determined to be “immediate” (2 inches or more in vertical displacement), as determined by inspection and evaluation of this section, including City-owned facilities.
- If there are any major category (between ½ inch and 2 inches in vertical displacement) priorities adjacent to the immediate priorities, those slabs will be addressed at the same time.
