Macomb Co Dept Of Roads Recognized For 14 Mi Rd Rehab

Metro Detroit Traffic NewsMt. Clemens, MI - The Macomb County Department of Roads (MCDR) and contractor Cadillac Asphalt were recently presented with an Award of Merit from the Asphalt Pavement Association of Michigan (APAM) for the 14 Mile Road rehabilitation project between Hayes Road and Hoover Road in Sterling Heights and Warren completed this year.

The project received the award within the category of projects that used between 10,000 and 30,000 tons of asphalt. The project, which was completed on time and on budget, included milling and removal of the existing road surface, base repair work, curb and gutter replacement, drive approaches, and a new asphalt surface.

“The team at the Department of Roads is committed to delivering quality projects that enhance the safety and efficiency of travel for all residents, motorists, and visitors traveling in Macomb County,” said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel. “The Department of Roads works closely with local and state contractors to design and build some of the best roads in the state.”

14 Mile Road is an important east and west corridor that is identified as a corridor of significance with more than 23,000 vehicles traveling on the roadway daily. As part of MCDR’s focus on corridors of significance, additional work is slated on 14 Mile Road between Van Dyke Avenue and Hoover Road with road rehabilitation and bridge preventative maintenance work anticipated to take place in 2025.

“The success of the project aligns with future work anticipated to take place on the next segments of 14 Mile Road,” said MCDR Director Bryan Santo. “Being recognized for our work is a tremendous honor and is a testament to the high level of performance from our contractors and Department of Roads inspectors, engineers, and personnel.”

Established in 1977, the Asphalt Paving Awards Program is a cooperative effort between APAM and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to recognize excellence in asphalt pavement construction. The awards recognize projects that are built with the utmost quality and attention to detail. The awards program also acknowledges the hardworking men and women that are involved in the design, construction, inspection, and management of projects as well as the road agencies who have jurisdiction over the roadways.
