Shelby Township Road Projects --24 MILE ROAD UPDATE--

With the installation of a new 42-inch Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water main the length of 24 Mile Road in Shelby Township complete, crews are looking to begin the final stages of the total reconstruction of the road this spring.


The crew from Ric-Man Construction completed the final below ground installation of 3,500-foot water main under the 24 Mile and Schoenherr roads intersection March 18, and began the final stages of paving the roadway April 18.


Crews will first pave the three sections of gravel road near the Macomb Orchard Trail, Mae Stecker Park and Schoenherr Road. This paving will result in intermittent lane closures  running until the end of April, and sporadic closures regulated by flagging crews in mid-May. Updates clsoures can be found via the MCDR here

After the unpaved sections are filled, minor structure adjustments will be made before a final layer of asphalt will be applied to the roadway, which will be follow by road striping and remediation work  to adjacent properties.


In addition to the new roadway that spans the entirety of the water main from the Rochester pump station near the Macomb Orchard Trail to Romeo Plank Road in Macomb Township, the MCDR will be installing a new roadway on 24 mile Road west of the pump station to Dequindre Road.

New vendor selected for electronics recycling program


The Board of Trustees unanimously approved a one-year contract with GreenTech Recyclers Feb. 16 to provide monthly electronics recycling service for the township. This agreement allows the program to continue relatively unchanged. 

With the new vendor, the collection of glass-screen CRT Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TVs and monitors will be limited to Shelby Township residents.  Participants from other communities are welcome to bring all of their other electronics to be recycled. 

Also, the township will no longer receive a rebate from the vendor.  In order to support the charitable “Give-Back Program,” for volunteer groups that staff the collection event, a $1 donation per car is suggested.
