Finally – relief for Canton Center Road drivers

Thanks to the passage of the Canton Township Road Improvement Program work has finally begun on Canton Center Road, one of the most pothole-infected roads in the entire Plymouth-Canton area.
In 2018 township voters passed a 20-year millage targeted for road improvements that will facilitate full concrete reconstruction of the northbound and southbound lanes of Canton Center between Ford (M-153) and Warren Road.
Canton Center is rated one four of the highest volume north-south traffic routes in Canton. Others are Haggerty, Lilley, and Beck.
Highway engineering experts claim the constant breaking of pavement on the one-mile stretch of roadway, under the control of Wayne County, was due to a combination of severely distressed pavement, inferior cement mix and inadequate joint spacing.
This large-scale construction project will be done in three phases. During Phase 1, the center three lanes will be closed with the outside lanes used to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction. Left-turns will be prohibited.
The cost of the work on this township road improvement project is estimated at $3.5 million.
