In-System Storage Project in the 8 1/2 Mile District Update

In efforts to have a better quality of water for the City of Eastpointe and St Clair Shores, the Public Works Commissioner of Macomb County has given us an update. With this upcoming project, we want our residents to know what is going on and what to expect this upcoming April and May. Below you will find the construction projects.

  • Excavation to install a manhole and below-grade odor control device. Excavation is expected to commence in mid- to late April and continue into May, and will result in intermittent traffic control and temporary closures of the northbound left lane and southbound left lane of Kelly Road at Oak Avenue.
  • Depending on DTE Energy’s utility relocation schedule, excavation will begin in May to construct an access shaft at the intersection of Beaconsfield at Oak Avenue, to install the In-System Storage device inside the interceptor pipe. This will continue to June 2023 and will require traffic detours around the construction area as well as for overhead utility relocation. Equipment will be staged starting in mid-April in the greenbelt between Beaconsfield and Interstate 94, for subsequent installation of a control building.
