Carrier Creek Interceptor Improvements Project & St. Joe Hwy Closure
The Carrier Creek Sewer Interceptor is the Township’s largest sewer interceptor spanning 4-5 miles, serving thousands of residents in addition to major employers such as General Motors, Meijer Distribution, Auto Owners, Amazon, and the State of Michigan Secondary Complex.
This project consists of the Replacement of a portion of the sewer by constructing a new, parallel sewer pipe with special structural supports and undercutting of poor soils to address the site conditions that compromised the existing sewer.
The planned project is expected to install approximately 1,250 feet of 36-inch sanitary sewer via open excavation from St. Joe Highway, cross country to Vicksburg Drive. The work includes the installation of sanitary sewer under Carrier Creek and St. Joe Highway and abandoning the existing 30-inch sanitary sewer being replaced. This section needed to be repaired in order to reliably serve the new sanitary flows from the Ultium Battery Plant, existing industrial customers, and a significant number of residential properties.

Public Safety Facility Project
Construction for the New Sheriff Substation has officially begun, and the new facility will take approximately 18 months to complete. The Eaton County Sheriff’s Office -Delta Patrol has been relocated to a new temporary facility off North Canal Rd. In November, the Delta Township Board approved the construction award in an amount not to exceed $14.5 million. The previous May, voters approved a bond proposal of up to $16 million to fund the project with an estimated 1.1218 millage rate for taxpayers.
Happily, the Township was able to keep the project under budget resulting in a reduced millage rate of 0.9591;
a $1.5 million savings for taxpayers.
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.
