CAP2007
Gardenia Avenue Improvements

East of Main Street to Campbell Road

Contractor: AJAX Paving Industries, Inc.


The city will be resurfacing Gardenia Avenue from just east of Main Street (east of Frentz & Sons Hardware) to Campbell Road. The city recently opted to add this project for 2018 due to the availability of funding for major road improvements. Construction is scheduled to begin in August 2018 and will be completed by mid-October 2018.  Work is not scheduled on Sundays, holidays, or during downtown festivals.


Construction notification letters were sent to residents in the surrounding neighborhood this week.

The contractor plans to begin mobilizing traffic control items during the week of July 30th and will begin saw-cutting and pavement removals on the north half of the street towards the end of the week.

The construction operations will close Gardenia Avenue to thru-traffic and will prohibit side street traffic from entering Gardenia between Main Street and Campbell Road as shown on the map below.

CAP1720 Royal Oak Roadway Rain Gardens

Contractor: Anglin Civil, LLC


The Royal Oak Roadway Rain Gardens project will take place this summer within the median of E. Fourth Street between S. Blair Avenue and S. Connecticut Avenue.  The project is funded by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s Non-Point Source Program, which provides grants to reduce water pollution and protect Michigan’s water resources.

Four rain gardens will be installed along the outer edges of the median and will be planted with native perennial plantings.  Rainwater from the roadway will drain into the rain gardens to help keep water out of the city’s sewer system. 
 
Construction will take place in August and September 2018 and is not expected to affect residential yards or private property.  There will be temporary lane width restrictions on E. Fourth Street, but traffic will be able to use the roadway throughout construction.  The contractor plans to begin mobilizing during the week of July 30th.
