Sidewalk construction has begun on Old US. Route 27 in-between Northcrest Road and Sheridan Road. This section of sidewalk improvement has been part of a much larger effort in DeWitt Township to make walking safer for pedestrians. Back on March 23, the township’s Board of Trustees approved a deal of about $296,000, in order to repair road cracks and potholes in areas such as Howe Road and Cedar Street. The township also approved plans to make a 10-foot-wide pathway and 5-foot-wide sidewalk addition that will stretch 1.6 miles long.
