UNION PIER — Elected officials on Aug. 27 praised how well communities have worked together to make the multi-million dollar Red Arrow Highway Union Pier Corridor Improvements Project a reality.
“After two years of public engagement, extensive meetings, coordination of nearly every public utility in the county, we’re standing at the crossroads of a project that’s going to improve the safety, the quality of life and the image of one of our beloved hamlets in Chikaming,” said Chikaming Township Supervisor David Bunte at the groundbreaking ceremony for the project.
The project includes new public restrooms, 1.3 miles of road resurfacing on Red Arrow Highway along with some work on Town Line and Union Pier roads, a non-motorized pathway and sidewalk improvements, as well as new storm water infrastructure, lighting and plantings at the intersection, which straddles the townships of New Buffalo and Chikaming.
