The City of Southfield, MI, is investing in infrastructure renewal as a key factor to achieving long-term sustainability as an independent and thriving municipality. Boosted by the passage of a $99 million Street Improvements Bond in 2014, the City launched an aggressive capital improvements program and has been a leader in active road construction projects in Oakland County over the past two years. Most projects include water main replacement as part of the City’s ongoing efforts to reduce water loss and advance its continuing capital improvement initiatives.

Wade Trim provided design and construction inspection for road and water main replacement through a neighborhood in the south-central part of the City. The $5.19 million project consists of 17,578 linear feet of water main replacement using open cut construction, and more than three miles of paving, which includes asphalt replacement and, in certain areas, new curb installation. Divided into two construction phases, the project met substantial completion in June 2017. It is expected to be fully complete in September 2017.
