City of Madison Heights R-2 Residential Street Repair Program

Since 1979, NFE has continuously served as municipal engineer for the City of Madison Heights. We have provided the City with civil engineering, surveying, consulting and administration services for numerous road reconstruction, sectional road replacement and infrastructure improvement projects.

From 1997 to 2007, NFE worked with the City on a voter approved Ten Year Residential Street Repair Program (R-1) that was drastically needed to repair neighborhood roads and water main that were constructed 40 to 50 years ago.

Due to the success of the R-1 program, the residents unanimously approved a second Ten Year Residential Street Repair Program (R-2). This program provided over $17 million of new revenue to continue replacing failed residential streets and upgrading original water, sanitary and storm infrastructure.

During the R-2 program from 2007 to 2017, NFE provided right-of-way and topographic surveys, engineering construction documents including plans and specifications, advertising and bidding, construction administration, construction layout and staking, and as-built surveys for 46 streets and/or street segments. This included over 43,962 linear feet or 8.33 miles of new pavement, 40,100 linear feet of new water main and 9,500 linear feet of new storm sewer.

Romeo Community Schools Barnabo Athletic Field Improvements

As part of the Romeo Community Schools’ bond proposal passed in 2016, NFE provided land surveying and civil engineering services for improvements to the Barnabo Athletic Field. NFE wasn’t new to Barnabo as we provided the same services back in 2008 when the field was first built.

NFE prepared engineering plans for demolition, site, grading, paving, storm water management, utility, synthetic turf field, paved track, soil erosion and sediment control, and site restoration. Improvements to the field area included:

  • Existing football and grass play surface replaced with synthetic turf up to the running track
  • Synthetic turf placed atop a layer of drainage stone and underlying drainage pipes to rapidly convert storm water from the playing field
  • New field with an underlying “shock pad” to reduce GMAX ratings and provide a safer playing surface
  • Below grade power and water sources provided at the 50-yard line for team use
  • Existing 400-meter asphalt track removed and fully reconstructed, including application of a black polyurethane coating and structural spray overlay to protect against future water penetration
  • New ADA compliant concrete sidewalks going to enlarge grandstand areas, field area and new concession building
  • A new shot-put area with a concrete pad, aluminum stops and landing zone
  • New discus area with concrete pad and discus cage with safety net
  • New long jump area with concrete runway, all-weather surfacing, 12-inch concrete curbing, sand infill and plywood take-off board
  • New pole vault area with paved runway of synthetic all-weather material and stainless-steel trays

Construction on the Barnabo Athletic Field was completed at the end of August 2017 just in time for the 2017-2018 school year and Romeo Bulldogs football season.
