Ann Arbor Berm Project Moving Forward

City of Ann Arbor

The City of Ann Arbor continues to move forward with the Allen Creek Railroad Berm Project.  

The COVID-19 crisis has not caused delays for the project that will provide flood protections for properties in the area of North Main and Depot Streets.  Robert Kellar is a spokesperson for the city and says the project will also create a safe pathway for the Border-to-Border Trail to cross under the Ann Arbor Railroad. 

"There’s been no COVID impact on the budget so far. So, it’s $9.4 million what the budget was. Forty-four percent of the funds for the project are coming from the city"

The rest of the project will be paid with state and federal grants.  It’s expected to be completed in October.
