Other items

Tier 2 Work that is the responsibility of AAPS (these suggested improvements have been communicated to AAPS through the TSC):

  • Ann Arbor Open: Sidewalk gap on Red Oak

  • Clague: Raised crosswalk on Bluett (AAPS/Clague would need to apply to the Traffic Calming Program)

  • Tappan: Sidewalk repair on Stadium – AAPS has replaced the deteriorated asphalt sidewalk along Stadium with a new concrete sidewalk.  

  • Scio Church: The City and AAPS are discussing the potential addition of Sidewalk along the north side of Scio Church Road adjacent to the Pioneer High School Property in conjunction with the planned 2018 resurfacing project. This would be an expense of AAPS, but could be constructed as part of the City's project. The City is awaiting confirmation from AAPS to proceed with including the sidewalk installation in the project.
