There are roughtly 100 miles of road in Eastpointe. A very large percentage of the roads are side streets. It is very expensive to reconstruct a road, and quite a bit cheaper to resurface a road. But, the best bet is to maintain them and have to do neither. City Council decided that we should put a lot of resources towards this endeavor to keep our streets up, save money in the long term, and build a better PASER rating.
This project was renewed and continued almost yearly after this point, at least through 2021.
