End of The Road for Some Unpaved Streets in Macomb Township

Street-paving projects are slated for this summer and next year in Macomb Township.

Macomb Township residents accustomed to navigating dirt roads will save money on car washes in the near future.

2013 paving projects

Clerk Michael Koehs said Wednesday the township is scheduled to spend $3.8 million this summer to pave gravel stretches of two main roads to asphalt. The Macomb County Road Department will do the work expected to be complete by end of summer.

  • 24 Mile between Fairchild and North Avenue
  • Fairchild between 21 Mile and 22-1/4 Mile

2014 plans for dirt paths

In 2014, the township plans to pave the following roads:

  • 24 Mile between Cracklewood and Foss
  • Hayes between 25 Mile and 26 Mile
  • Luchtman between 25 and 26 Mile

Connecting streets in the future

The community, which has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, is keeping up with changing times and accommodating residents, Koehs said.

"It will reduce it down to maybe less than six miles of dirt road in the township," he said.

Beyond those upcoming projects, township officials hope to eventually connect Heydenreich and Broughton roads – which are actually the same street that is just not linked at this time, he said.
