E. Huron Road, Water, & Stormwater Project
During the 2021 construction season, the Village has planned a project on E. Huron St. between Mont Eagle & River Dr. to replace an outdated water main, improve stormwater management, and replace the road surface. 

Residents along E. Huron, and in adjacent neighborhoods, are encouraged to register to attend a resident information meeting on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. This meeting will be done in a virtual format and is intended to provide a general overview of the project and offer an opportunity for residents to ask questions about the project.

Road Millage Projects
Map of Milford Past Road Projects (Updated late 2020)In 2012, voters in the Village approved a 20-year dedicated millage for road repairs and maintenance with a levy of 3.5 mills for the first 10 years and a levy of 1.0 mill for the final 10 years. The levy began with the 2013-2014 fiscal year. Due to rollbacks in the millage rate as required by the Headlee Amendment, the current road millage levy is 3.2519 mills for fiscal year 2018-2019.

To date, the road millage has generated $3.68 million in funds for road improvements in the Village. The Village able to use portions of these funds to secure federal funding of approximately $1 million for projects involving repairs to the E. Huron St. bridge, Commerce Rd., and the scheduled repairs to S. Milford Rd. in 2019. Additionally, the Village has spent approximately $950,000 in funds from the General Fund on road work since 2013.
