Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic and Executive Order No. 2020-21 issued by Governor Whitmer on March 23, 2020, construction on John Daly Street will be suspended until the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order is lifted. Construction is currently expected to resume mid-April. 

During this time the John Daly Street will remain closed and the detour will remain in place.

Project Description 

The City of Inkster has allocated funds for the reconstruction of John Daly Street from Michigan Avenue to the Rouge River for an approximate length of one-third of a mile. These funds shall be used for the construction of water main, sanitary and storm sewers, curb/gutter, concrete sidewalks including ADA ramps, material quality control testing, and concrete street reconstruction. 

Phase 1, Rouge River to Inkster Park, was completed in 2019. 


There will be a few individual residences along John Daly St. that will have their driveways restricted throughout construction. The contractor will work with those particular residents if access to the garage is required. 

Tentative Key Construction Dates – these are project and weather dependent 

Phase 2 – Start February 17, 2020 – complete July 31, 2020 

Phase 2 Michigan Avenue to Inkster Park 

John Daly St. will be completely closed from Michigan Avenue to Inkster Park for all remaining reconstruction work completion. During this phase, residents will be able to access Inkster Park from the north.

Frequently Asked Questions 

  • How will access to homes be maintained? 

In order to expedite construction, John Daly will be completely closed for Phase 2. If residences require access to garages on John Daly St residents are encouraged to contact the Project Engineer to coordinate with the contractor for access. 

  • Will trees be removed as part of the construction project? 

Some trees are scheduled to be removed as part of the construction project and will only be removed as necessary. Trees scheduled for removal will not be replaced. 

  • What about lawn restoration? 

Disturbed lawn areas will be fully restored to pre-construction conditions with topsoil, fertilizer, seed, and mulch. If necessary, the contractor will return in the fall of 2020 to ensure grass growth.
