BIRMINGHAM’S 2019 CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM 

The Engineering Department is planning several projects aimed at maintaining and improving Birmingham’s water, sewer, and street network.  Here's what's planned for 2019:

2019 Construction Map
Quarton Lake Subdivision Reconstruction (west of Chesterfield Avenue)
Segments of N. Glenhurst Dr., Raynale St., Brookwood, and Kenwood Ct. will receive upgrades to their water and sewer systems, followed by new concrete pavement. This section of the neighborhood, directly north of Quarton Elementary School, will be impacted for a three- to four-month period. The streets will stay open to local traffic only during the first phase of the project. During paving, the streets will be closed to all traffic. The City appreciates your patience as it works to complete these improvements as fast as possible.

Bowers Street (between Woodward Avenue and Adams Road)
Elm Street (between Woodward Avenue and Bowers Street)
Bowers Street (between Old Woodward Avenue and Woodward Avenue)
Bowers Street, east of Woodward, and Elm Street, south of Bowers Street, will be closed to all but local traffic to allow for the installation of a new water main and some sewer repairs, followed by concrete repairs where needed and asphalt surface removal and replacement. The project will take about six weeks to complete. Meanwhile, Bowers Street, west of Woodward, will receive asphalt pavement resurfacing that will result in minimal traffic impacts.

Parking Lot #6 (behind 600 N. Old Woodward Avenue)
The City's municipal parking lot on the north end of downtown will be enlarged with 32 new parking spaces. Storm water will be directed to a bioswale to improve the quality of water discharged into the adjacent Rouge River. Finally, the lot will be resurfaced throughout. The lot is expected to stay open to customers every day except for two Saturdays. The project is anticipated to start in April. The ever popular Farmer's Market will remain open every week as well.

Park Street (between Oakland Boulevard and Hamilton Row)
The block in front of the Park Street Parking Structure will be closed to ALL traffic for less than a month to allow for sewer improvement work, followed by removal and replacement of the pavement. The driving surface will be enhanced with new concrete. In addition, older sidewalks will be updated to match the City's standard streetscape design and enhanced street lights and additional trees will also be installed. Finally, the Park Street Parking Structure will remain open at all times, however, the Park Street entrance will have to be closed for several weeks to accommodate the project.

BIRMINGHAM’S 2019 SIDEWALK PROGRAM
