Sidewalk is program under way

Residents will soon be able to take a more comfortable stroll in Van Buren Township.

More than 225 linear feet of concrete curb and gutter will soon be replaced as more than 8,000 square foot of existing concretes sidewalk is removed and replaced.

The Van Buren Township Downtown Development Authority with the assistance of Wade Trim and Merlo Construction will begin the work this week within the boundaries of the Downtown Development Authority district, along Belleville Road, Tyler Road, Ecorse Road and the I-94 Service Roads.  

A map of the locations where the work will take place is available at  

The work is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete, depending on weather conditions, officials said.  

In an effort to minimize damage to sprinkler heads/lines, Wade Trim will be asking impacted businesses to mark their sprinkler heads and sprinkler lines.  A representative from Wade Trim will be visiting those businesses to provide them with the necessary marker flags, officials said.
