Mt. Hope Pathway – Proposed project for 2016, to close the gap on the south side of Mt. Hope between Okemos and Maumee.
Project Update 3/23/17: Construction is scheduled to begin the week of April 10. This project will also include replacing the failing retaining wall at 1998 Jolly.
Project Update 11/30/16: Bids were opened 11/29/16 and further steps are being taken to award the contract.
Project Update 11/8/16: A contract is being negotiated for the installation of approximately 3,000 lineal feet of concrete sidewalk on the south side of Mt. Hope Road, between Maumee Drive and Okemos Road. This will complete the only remaining gap from Hagadorn to Okemos along the south side of Mt. Hope. Additionally, there are two separate locations which will widen an existing walk to the Township's standard seven foot. Confirmed dates will follow.
Project Update 7/7/16: We continue to work on obtaining the last 2 easements from property owners. We are hopeful the project will be completed this year still. Our goal at this point is to bid the work early August with completion in late October.
