Ludlow Road Construction
Ludlow Rd. from Scotia to Meadowcrest will undergo total reconstruction starting Monday, May 20th, weather permitting.

This will include new water main, storm drains, curbs, driveway approaches, and road surfaces, followed by the restoration of right-of-way areas. Ludlow will be closed to traffic during the project, which could last up to five months. All residents who live on those two blocks have received letters at their doors with more details, and are encouraged to join the Ludlow e-mail list for construction updates. Call DPW at 248 547-1888 or email hwdpw@hwmi.org to be included. 


Update: May 10th, 2024
As work on Lincoln continues, the Ludlow project is about to start. The week of the 13th, signs and barrels will appear. At some point, possibly the week of the 20th, the road will be pulverized and preparations for water main and storm sewer will begin. If you would like additional updates specifically regarding the Ludlow project, please join the Ludlow email list so that the DPW can get information to you efficiently. Send an email to hwdpw@hwmi.org to be added to the Ludlow list.


Original Post: March 27th, 2024
In the coming weeks, residents will begin to see evidence of upcoming roadwork. Here are the projects for 2024:

Mill and Fill  
Lincoln: repairing curb, removing asphalt, and resurfacing (“mill and fill”) Lincoln from Allor to just west of Dundee. This will be done in three phases to avoid closing an entire major road. Curb work could start in the 2nd week of April or so. 

Full Reconstruction with new curbs, storm sewers, water main, and asphalt
Ludlow: Ludlow reconstruction will go from Scotia to Meadowcrest.
Sherwood: Sherwood reconstruction will go from Henley to Roycourt.
Berkley: Berkley reconstruction will go from Winchester to Vernon.
Meadowcrest: Meadowcrest reconstruction will go from Ludlow to Borgman.

The projects will likely occur in the order on this list, starting at the end of May and ending at the end of October.

The DPW will build email lists for each street to get information to affected residents, with street-specific information, schedules, and suggestions. Please watch for letters on your door, as well. To get an early spot on the email lists, residents can email hwdpw@hwmi.org, with your name, address, and a phone number.
