Lottery winners in Canton Township will see $3.6 million in street repairs to local subdivisions.
The locations for the repairs in the township were chosen through a local lottery last year that selected the 13 neighborhoods which were to receive $1.5 million in funding for street repairs from Wayne County. The project was delayed from the scheduled start date last summer. Seven more subdivisions were added to the list of those to receive repairs when another $1.5 million was allocated by the county.
The balance of the repairs, or about $600,000 will be paid by the homeowners associations in the subdivisions, as the project requires 20 percent in matching funds.
Township Supervisor Phil LaJoy said the project would certainly provide a smoother ride in many areas, but did not include all the repairs necessary to area roads.
Members of the Canton Township Board of Trustees have awarded a contract for $629,219 to Hutch Paving Co. to perform asphalt repairs in some areas of the township and awarded a contract to Florence Cement Co. for $2.4 million in concrete replacement.
The pavement repairs are expected to begin in late spring and continue through November, officials said.
Neighborhoods slated for repair include: Forest Brook, Meadow Brook, Century Farms, Oakvale/Stonegate, Fairways West, Willow Homes, Nowland Estates, Canton Country Acres, Huntington Place No. 1, River Woods, Salem Manor, Royal Pointe and Glengarry No. 1. Added to the list this year were: Windsor Park, Brookside No. 5, Meadow Villages, Sunflower and the Glengarry subdivisions.
