Meadowbrook Rd. bridge closed, Haggerty Rd. bridge next
Work has already begun in preparation for the larger I-275 project that will consist of major repairs along the freeway from Five Mile in Wayne County to the I-96/I-696/M-5 interchange in Oakland County.

The Meadowbrook Road bridge over I-96 will be closed until Friday, April 22. The three Haggerty Road bridges (over eastbound I-96/I-275, westbound I-96 and eastbound/westbound M-5) will be closed from April 23-May 1.

The official shutdown date for southbound I-275 has yet to be determined but is expected to be early May. It is anticipated NB and SB I-275 will be open to traffic by mid-September 2016.

More information on the project can be found at revive275.com.

Survey on current trash pickup must be completed by April 25
All Novi residents who would be impacted by the possible shift to single-hauler trash collection should have received a postcard asking them to complete a brief survey.

The information from the survey (annual current cost, day of collection, if you are under contract or subscription, etc.) will be used to ensure City Council has the most accurate data as they deliberate.

The survey can be found at cityofnovi.org/trash and must be completed by April 25. If you did not receive a survey, please call 248.735.5628. City Council is expected to discuss and make a decision regarding the recommended single-hauler trash collection contract at its meeting on May 23.

Businesses and residents who dispose of their trash in a dumpster will not be impacted.
