City of Howell to receive 1.7M grant for State Street remodeling

The City of Howell’s long-term goal of reconstructing State Street has become possible due to a $1,729,179 grant from the State of Michigan’s Community Development Block Grant.

The grant will cover improvements to Howell’s downtown streetscape and infrastructure in the 100 block of North State Street. After downtown Howell winning the 2018 Great American Main Street award the city continues to improve the community. The State of Michigan grant funding support will cover close to 90 percent of the complete project costs.


The funding covers:

• Complete reconstruction of the two alleys between State Street and Michigan Avenue that will improve drainage in the area

• Complete reconstruction of State Street with a barrier-free design

• Repair or replacement of all water, sewer, and storm sewer lines in the area, including the removal of any lead, jointed water lines in the project area

• Burial of the majority of electrical service lines in the popular alleyways

• Enhancements throughout the project, including new landscaping, trash receptacles, and benches
