Another Okemos Road Project

By  | 

The project would cost around one million dollars. A little more than half coming from a Department of Transportation grant... with Meridian Township picking up the rest of the tab.

At a Wednesday night public forum, a preliminary plan was presented with a mixed reaction those in attendance.

Some were concerned about losing left-turn lanes, just constructed during this past summer's widening project. Others want to make sure traffic flow is good, bike and walk paths remain safe, and that the scenery is improved as much as possible.

Those concerns were the very reason for the meeting, according to Meridian Township Manager, Gerald Richards. He says they made a direct point to involve the public early and often to get their opinion before final plans are made.

More public meetings are in the works.
