Non-Motorized Transportation - Webb Road Sidewalks
Earlier this month, DeWitt Township staff met with members of the Clinton County Road Commission (CCRC) to discuss the Township’s Non-Motorized Transportation Plan which was last updated in 2019. At the meeting, staff and Road Commission representatives discussed a general project timeline for design and construction to extend sidewalks along Webb Road, from Old US-27 to the City of DeWitt in 2023. This existing sidewalk gap is the last one remaining between the two communities and upon completion will provide residents greater mobility to move about the DeWitt area in ways other than by automobile.
As part of the project, the sidewalk extension is planned for both the north and south sides of Webb Road and each side will be 5-feet in width. The sidewalk additions will connect directly with the existing sidewalks in the City of DeWitt and adjacent subdivisions within the Township, for a seamless transition between the communities while also enhancing the quality of life for residents by offering greater internal mobility and proper pedestrian infrastructure for safer and healthier lifestyles.
Residents impacted by the proposed construction will be receiving a letter by mail providing them preliminary project information and timelines. The project engineering and construction contracting will be carried out through the Clinton County Road Commission.
