Barker Road Non-Motorized Pathway

Northfield Township was awarded a grant for the design and construction a non-motorized pathway which linked the Whitmore Lake Elementary School with several subdivisions to the east of the school. Boss Engineering was involved through the entire project; starting with the preparation of the Grant Proposal to the Washtenaw County Parks Department through construction administration. Portions of the path system crossed wetland areas. This required the design of a board in order to limit disturbance in these areas. The boardwalk required approval from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. There are a total of three phases for the project, which would eventually connect the school with the downtown Whitmore Lake area.
