The city of Lansing will construct approximately 1 mile of non-motorized, barrier-free trail between Potter Park and Mt. Hope Road, and between Mt. Hope Cemetery and Scott Woods Park, linking to the existing Lansing River Trail at each end of the project. The trail will be a mix of asphalt paving, boardwalk and pre-engineered bridges. The proposed budget is $1,539,376, including $1,015,988 in federal funds, $500,000 in Michigan Department of Natural Resources funds, $10,000 in Ingham County funds, and $13,388 from the city of Lansing. In addition to the match, the city and county are also contributing $252,832 for project design and engineering costs, and a pedestrian-activated signal.
The city of Lansing, in partnership with Ingham County, will construct approximately one mile of non-motorized, barrier-free trail that will connect with the existing River Trail at Hawk Island County Park, beginning at Cavanaugh Road, and continuing south along the Sycamore Creek corridor to Maguire Park at the corner of Jolly and Aurelius roads. The trail will be a mix of asphalt paving, boardwalk and pre-engineered bridges.
The project budget is $1,144,551, including $553,848 in federal funds, $426,500 from the Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund, $101,806 from the city of Lansing, and $62,397 from Ingham County. In addition to the match, the city and county will contribute a total of $210,686 for project design and engineering costs.
The city of Lansing will install streetscape enhancements along the 200 and 300 blocks of North Washington Square, including historic-style lighting, benches, bike racks, brick pavers, brick crosswalks, and tree plantings. Rain gardens will be constructed to provide filtration treatment to the storm water runoff prior to discharging to the storm sewer system. The project budget is $1,334,000, including $266,800 in federal Transportation Enhancement funds and $1,067,200 in matching funds from the city of Lansing. The improvements are a continuation of similar streetscape projects previously completed along Washington Avenue and Michigan Avenue. The proposed work will be done concurrently with reconstruction of the 200 and 300 blocks of North Washington Square, which will re-open the two blocks to vehicular traffic. The city is spending $1,570,000 for the road reconstruction and associated storm sewer separation work.
