NOW: Set of sidewalks will connect Lincoln Charter Township with nearby Stevensville

LINCOLN TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Lincoln Charter Township gets approval for a new project that would bring more sidewalks to the area! 

Two 6 ft. sidewalks will run on either side of John Beers Rd., from South Roosevelt Rd., all the way to downtown Stevensville. 

The township supervisor tells ABC57 that State Rep. Joey Andrews was instrumental in getting the ball rolling on this project. 

Andrews helped raise around $400k towards the $1 million that was needed. A CMAQ (Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality) grant supplied another $400k, and Michigan's Carbon Reduction Strategy gave $100k. The township then raised the last of the money.  

This project has been in the making for years, and township leaders expect to break ground and get one step closer to improving walkability in the area next year. 

These sidewalks will make it easier for township neighbors to travel to Stevensville, where many go for restaurants and shopping. 

It will also make it easier for Stevensville neighbors to get to the Lincoln Township Public Library and Martin’s Supermarket; or the community center and park. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation also has plans to build a 10 ft. wide path along nearby Red Arrow Highway, too.
