DEWITT — A stretch of Schavey Road in the city and township of DeWitt is being reconstructed as of May to improve travel for citizens.
Rod Taylor is the DeWitt Township manager, and his job is to oversee the management of the project. According to Taylor, there is something called a Pacer Rating done with residents and the rating for Schavey Road was the lowest by far.
“Drop off and pick-up here is awful. You ask anybody here. I’d say it was about time,” said Linda Crosby who works at Schavey Road Elementary School. “The damages are getting pretty hard to avoid.”
The project for the township will effect Schavey Road south from Herbison Road to Clark Road, and for the city it will run north from Herbison Road to Howe Road It includes improvements to the existing pavement, but is also adding non-motorized trails such as sidewalks and a 10-foot pathway, according to Taylor.
