College Place due for June repaving

The City of Ypsilanti is planning to use money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for the $320,000 project. Crosswalks will also be added near Forest Avenue, Cross Street and in front of Pease.

Uneven roads are enough to make even the most seasoned seafarer vomit.

That’s why the City of Ypsilanti is planning repairs on College Place near the Eastern Michigan University campus in June.

The street’s surface will be totally replaced along with the fire hydrants in the area.

“The project was originally estimated at about $204 (thousand), but with the extra work that EMU wants to include the final estimate is at about $320,000,” Ypsilanti Department of Public Services Director Stan Kirton said.

In addition to the regular road work, a stamped-concrete cross walk will be installed in front of Pease Auditorium. A new cross walk near Cross Street and two near Forrest Ave. will also be installed.
