Trowbridge Road repaving - Harrison Road to Oyer Speech and Hearing

Project phase: Construction

Project background

  • MDOT constructed the campus extension of Trowbridge Road in 2001.
  • Trowbridge Road has evolved into the primary entrance to campus. As such, pavement deterioration has necessitated replacement. 

Project detail

  • Goal is to achieve a 20-year life span for the new pavement.

Project scope

  • Mill and resurface both eastbound and westbound roadways (four lanes and two bike lanes) from Harrison Road to Oyer Speech and Hearing parking lot.


  • Pedestrian and vehicular circulation will be affected
  • Our goal is to maintain a minimum of one lane open in both directions, so detours will not be necessary.


  • Construction start: June 5, 2017
  • Construction completion: July 28, 2017


  • $940,000,which includes a $35,250 contingency.  The project will be funded by the general fund - capital renewal.
