2019 Road Bond Program

On January 22, 2019, Mayor & Council approved a resolution to move forward with the Road Bond Proposal. 

An addition $2.3 Million in road reconstruction and repair will be possible in 2019 due to the passage of this resolution. Please see below for a map of the work to be completed. 

Road Reconstruction 
This project involves the road reconstruction and water main replacement of the following streets:

Capitol Ave - Dix to Porter
White Ave - Fort to Chandler
Pagel Ave - Applewood to New York

The design of this project is complete and water main permit applications being submitted this week. Project expected to go out to bid next week week with a May 1 bid opening.    Construction to start after June 1.  

Asphalt Resurfacing Program
This project involves the asphalt resurfacing of the following streets:

Capitol Ave - Fort to Ferris
Buckingham Ave - Hazel to Dix
Ferris Ave - Cicotte to Montie
New York Ave - Ferris to Wilson
Garfield Ave - Ferris to Wilson

The bid opening for this project was held on April 3 with 5 bids received.  The low bid was received from HMC of Troy.  However, per the specs the same contractor would not be awarded both asphalt contracts.  Therefore, the next low bid is from Birmingham Sealcoat and Paving.  Currently working to obtain reference information and will have a recommendation of award for Council consideration at their May 6 meeting.  Construction to start after July 1. 

How Are Roads Prioritized?

Hennesssey Engineers utilized 2-man crews to drive all street segments owned and maintained by the City of Lincoln Park. RoadSoft-GIS software was utilized to develop a comprehensive database of the City's roadway infrastructure and to provide surface ratings based upon the PASER rating system. This allows the City to prioritize roads for a long term capital improvement program. The ratings are for the surface of the roadway only. It does not evaluate the underground infrastructure. Hennessey prioritizes, based on available funding and grants, the roads that are in the most need of repair in an equitable manner.
