Congressman Andy Levin Releases MI-09 Infrastructure Report for 2019

May 22, 2019
Press Release
The report was developed using responses to a survey completed by every city and township manger in Oakland and Macomb Counties, which identified 80 infrastructure priorities across 21 communities.

Congressman Andy Levin today released a report detailing the findings of an infrastructure survey he sent to city and township leaders across Michigan’s 9th Congressional District. The assessment identified 80 infrastructure priorities across 10 communities in Macomb County and 11 in Oakland County. The report includes 49 of the identified projects that represent the diversity of priorities in the district.

“This report demonstrates the cooperation between local communities and the federal government that will be required to transform our country’s infrastructure,” Congressman Levin said. “The priorities highlighted by the MI-09 communities in this report will directly inform my advocacy in Congress for a bold infrastructure plan that makes Macomb and Oakland Counties more sustainable, safer places to live.”

The report includes a diverse list of projects including road and water improvements in Huntington Woods, developing a pedestrian-friendly main street in Center Line, and combined sewer storage improvements in St. Clair Shores.

The infrastructure needs identified in the assessment total approximately $1.6 billion across the 80 projects.

Earlier this month, Congressman Levin sent a letter to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee identifying water infrastructure, zero-net energy buildings and electric vehicle charging infrastructure as top infrastructure priorities for Michigan’s 9th District. The findings of today’s report are consistent with those priorities.

Congressman Levin also last month sent a letter to the House Appropriations Committee requesting federal funding to improve Macomb County’s Chapaton Retention Basin.
