COVID Construction Restarts

Mayor Duggan announces plan to restart $120M in construction projects with 170 new affordable housing units 

Mayor Mike Duggan announced today that the City’s commitment to affordable housing resumes today, as construction will pick back up on six projects across Detroit that will add more than 170 affordable units, plus shelter beds and supportive housing.

Work on the combined $120 million in development, consisting of a total of 370 new units, had been delayed because of the COVID-19 crisis.

Contractors will be required to follow the City’s COVID-19 Safe Workplace Standards for Construction Sites, including testing, workplace distancing, mandatory use of facemasks and thorough sanitization of worksites and vehicles. The workers will receive free testing.

These projects already had funding secured before the COVID-19 crisis struck, meaning that they will continue, regardless of economic conditions caused by the virus outbreak.
