The US-23 corridor between M-14 and Brighton is known as a rush-hour problem. The Michigan Department of Transportation is hoping to alleviate some of that congestion through use of 'Dynamic Shoulders'. One local group supports some of MDOT's proposal, but would like to see something other than these 'dynamic shoulders.'

Nov 12, 2013

Grants from the Michigan Department of Transportation will help improve the "walkability" of the Dexter area. 

A partnership including the village, Dexter Community Schools and the Chelsea-area Wellness Foundation is receiving about $225,000 to help close gaps in the community's sidewalks. 

Village Manager Donna Dettling says there are good routes from most sub-divisions to Dexter Schools, but a few problem areas were identified in developing the safe routes to school planning document.  Dettling says they hope to finalize designs and identify a contractor this winter, so construction on sidewalks and other projects can begin in the spring.  She says the community is thrilled with the M-DOT funding and the planning work done through a great collaboration gave Dexter an enormous benefit.
