Dec. 12, 2012 PLYMOUTH VOICE.
Plymouth Township officials unanimously approved plans to solicit bids for streetscape improvements for the Ann Arbor Road Corridor at their Tuesday Board of Trustee meeting.
Township Supervisor, Richard Reaume, announced they have received an estimate and preliminary plans from engineering consulting firm, Spalding DeDecker, who estimates the project cost at $921,000.
Labeled as Phase II, the design and engineering work will span on Ann Arbor Road from General Drive to Sheldon Road, and consist of landscape plantings, ornamental fencing and stamped concrete sidewalks.
In their printed executive summary, officials described the project as the second phase that will, “Create a visual cohesiveness that will foster a sense of place…will promote the Township as an attractive community in which to live, work and recreate.”
Reaume said they would summarize bids and seek final board approval in February.
Phase I of the streetscape was completed in 2007 at a cost of $1,400,000.
