2018 Township Road Improvement Program


Sparta Township evaluates the condition of its road system on an annual basis as part of its ongoing roadway maintenance program.   The Engineering and Public Works Departments work together to evaluate the condition of each roadway in the community and compile a list of municipal roads recommended for improvement annually.  Using different criteria and a rating matrix, selected roads are either paved or scheduled for microsurfacing.  This evaluation process is applied to the more than 110 miles of roadway the Township is responsible for.

This year, the Township has budgeted funds as part of its Road Improvement Program to pave six (6) roads and microsurface twenty-six (26) roads.  This work will result in approximately twelve (12) miles of roadway being improved during 2018.  

The following roads are tentatively scheduled to be improved this summer and should be completed prior to the end of September:
