Construction begins on sidewalk on I-96 overpass

Alpine Avenue is finally getting a sidewalk on the I-96 overpass in Walker.  Construction is underway on the nearly half-mile long sidewalk. 

Right now, pedestrians, bicyclists, and people in wheel chairs, have to walk or roll on the grass and on the narrow shoulder of Alpine Avenue, with vehicles whizzing by just inches away.  The new sidewalk will connect with two existing sidewalks, which now end in front of Logan’s restaurant north of I-96 and in front of Home Depot south of the freeway.

The city of Walker is spending more than $80,000 in Federal Community Development block grant money to build the sidewalk and safety fence on the west side of Alpine Avenue and I-96 overpass.
