The contractor is beginning to plant trees and is monitoring areas that were restored with grass following construction. As the weather warms, if the grass does not sprout, it will be reseeded.
The project reconfigured Leonard to include a center turn lane, two vehicle lanes, and two bike lanes. This design improves safety for people who drive, bike, and walk on the street by providing space for all users and a dedicated center turn lane to improve traffic flow. In order to accomodate these improvements, parking on both sides of the street was removed. Please be aware that City ordinance prohibits parking in a bike lane.
Funding for the $12.8 million project was paid for by a $1.3 million federal grant administered through the Michigan Department of Transportation, two Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Drinking Water Revolving Fund loans totaling $4.7 million, and the city’s Water System, Vital Streets Capital, and Sewer System Funds.
