Howard Street (Stadium to Michigan)

  • Project value$722,000
  • Project scheduleMid-July - August 2024

This project is primarily a resurfacing of Howard Street from Stadium Drive to W Michigan Avenue, but it includes a number of other elements as well:

  • Resurfacing Howard Street from Stadium Drive to W Michigan Ave
  • A new left turn opening from Howard to Rogowski Avenue
  • Reconstruction of the left-hand turn lane for vehicles traveling northbound on Howard turning left onto W Michigan. The plastic posts will be removed and replaced with concrete curb. What was previously the inner turn lane will become grassed median island.
  • Storm sewer improvements to prevent ponding near the railroad crossing
  • New sidewalk ramps at the south side of the Howard-Michigan intersection

Estimated construction cost is $724,400. A Federal grant will cover $473,600 and the remaining $248,400 will be covered by the City’s major streets fund. The project will begin shortly after WMU’s spring commencement with completion expected before the fall semester begins.
