Concrete Road Replacement Project in 2023

Nowland Estates is again participating in the Canton Local Road Match Program. For an investment of $2,500 the subdivision will receive a concrete removal and replacement project valued at $50,000. The township estimates the cost to remove and replace concrete streets to be $12.55 per square foot ($112.95 per square yard).

 

With this information the board could budget a project for 3,984 square feet (~443 square yards) of concrete removal and replacement. The board reviewed the condition of the concrete streets and formulated a project scoping plan based on this area. The scoping plan focused on several areas in the subdivision that contain failed concrete or concrete that obstructs storm water drainage. There are many other areas which are good candidates for removal and replacement. Those other areas will be kept in mind for future projects.

 

The township accepted the board's scoping plan on October 17, 2022. Township engineers will be working on design activities in the next few months. The township's designs and specifications will be let out for bid next spring with anticipation that the work will be completed by the end of the construction season in 2023.

More detailed information will be published when it is available.

Check out the Roads Project: Project Scheduled for 2023 for a look at the project scope.

Snow Removal

 

Streets will be plowed after a snowfall event of 2" or more. Plowing should be finished within 48 hours AFTER the snow stops falling.

Please remove your cars from the street during snow events.  Moving your car allows the contractor to clear the roads safely, efficiently and completely.

Please shovel you sidewalk in a timely manner.

Edited from: Canton FOCUS, December 2021, "Snow removal reminder".

"The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) reminds property owners that depositing snow and ice in public roadways is prohibited. Snow, ice or slush pushed onto the roadway creates a safety hazard, as well as crates inefficiencies for...snow removal operations which results in increased costs to the public for winter maintenance services."

Housekeeping Announcement

From Canton FOCUS, October 2022

Canton is asking residents to help clear residential storm drains that are covered in leaves and/or debris. When the drain is blocked, water can’t flow properly and flooding may result. Additionally, piles of leaves create poisonous gas when they build up in the underground catch basins. This gas causes oxygen levels to fluctuate to dangerously low levels in creeks and streams where fish and other wildlife live. Unclogging storm drains is quick and easy! Simply sweep, rake or shovel away leaves covering the grate and pile them away from the drain so they do not blow back in again.

Tree Trimming Above Sidewalks

Canton Township Ordinances require tree branches to be trimmed to 7' above all sidewalks.

This is important for the safety of pedestrians and bike riders.
