Detroit has kicked off work on a $58 million project to repave 88 miles of major and local roads across the city.
Plans call for resurfacing 58 miles of residential streets and 30 miles of major roadways, including parts of Joy Road, Russell Street in Eastern Market, Fenkell, Cadieux, McGraw and East McNichols, otherwise known as Six Mile.
Crews will also rehabilitate the Bagley Street Bridge in Mexicantown and the West Parkway Culvert in Rouge Park, a portion of which has been closed to traffic for the past two years. Broken sidewalks will also be replaced alongside the road projects.
Much of the money for the work is coming from bond funds that the City Council approved last fall.
