Waverly Shared Use Pathway Project
The Waverly Pathway Project was one of four finalists for the statewide Michigan Municipal League's 2021 Community Excellence Award. Members of the Delta Township Board along with several staff represented the Township during the 2021 Annual MML Conference in Grand Rapids.
The Waverly Pathway collaborative project with Lansing Township was hailed by communities across the state as a remarkable example of regional cooperation at its best. This year's competition for the Community Excellence Award was very close, and Delta Township put forth a great effort. In the end, however, our project narrowly lost out to the City of Rochester Hills. Delta Township wishes to extend our congratulations to Rochester Hills on their award and to all of the finalists for this year's competition, which also included the cities of East Lansing and Sterling Heights. We are honored to be among this great group of Municipal projects making our communities great places to live, work, and play. We thank all our partners in this project including Lansing Township, MDOT, Ingham County, Eaton County, and Tri-County Regional Planning Commission.
About the Project:
The 10-foot Waverly Road shared-use pathway was a project completed after efforts by Delta and Lansing Charter Townships to bring together regional partners to coordinate a non-motorized need of the two municipalities, reconstruction of a county road, and a $60 million freeway project. Delta Charter Township and Lansing Charter Township were active in planning discussions with multiple agencies to plan the addition of the shared use pathway through the project area to address a lack of facilities and associated hazards to pedestrians in the area. The project included connections to the west side of Waverly at St. Joe and Old Lansing Road to make the path available to all residents. The project was financed with three different grants totaling $874,000. The project was made possible through extraordinary multi-agency collaboration which resulted in a regional non-motorized pathway.
