Ypsilanti’s city council will discuss a construction project Tuesday tonight that’s expected to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety.
The $3.3 million “Huron Pathway” project would create a 10-foot-wide pedestrian and bicycle path over I-94 at Huron Street. City Council Member Steve Wilcoxen from the second ward says the current bridge at that interchange is only designed for cars.
Council Member Wilcoxen: As of now, there’s no pedestrian crossing out there. People walk down the median, and it’s really unsafe. And then other people are walking on the road. Riding a bike across there is very hazardous with all the traffic going on.
