Lotz, Ford road project designs ‘moving along’ in Canton

Canton motorists weary of traffic congestion along Ford Road could get a glimpse as early as February of two projects officials believe will begin to ease the problem.

One project involves a $5 million effort to pave the pothole-riddled section of Lotz Road between Ford and Cherry Hill, giving motorists a north-south option to avoid heavily traveled roads such as Ford and Haggerty.

A second project centers on improvements such as lengthening turn lanes and improving ramps near the I-275/Ford area from Haggerty to Lotz. That comes as a precursor to longer-term effort to possibly convert Ford into a boulevard through much of Canton.

Canton is expected to host a public meeting as early as February to reveal plans for the Lotz paving and the initial phase of Ford Road work from Lotz to Haggerty, Municipal Services Director Tim Faas said.

Canton already has received from Wayne County a $274,015 payment that allowed the township to hire an engineering company, Spalding DeDecker Associates, Inc., to design the Lotz Road paving, which Faas said is slated for completion in 2015.

Spalding DeDecker already has completed about 50 percent of the engineering work, Faas said. Lotz will be transformed from a dirt-and-gravel road into a three-lane paved thoroughfare.

Canton has worked with Wayne County on the Lotz Road project, funded through the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Township Supervisor Phil LaJoy said he is encouraged Spalding DeDecker’s work is progressing and Wayne County has paid Canton for its role in hiring the engineering company.

“That’s very good news,” LaJoy said, adding the project “is moving along.”

Moreover, Faas said MDOT’s design of the initial improvements to Ford Road between Lotz and Haggerty has been 90 percent completed.

Local officials say the projects slated for the upcoming public meeting reflect the beginning of larger efforts, as money is allocated, to address Ford Road traffic congestion that has long troubled local officials and motorists alike.

Ford Road/I-275 interchange condition progress

As many of you know, a Senate Transportation Hearing was held at Summit on the Park on November 1st. The Senate Transportation Committee conducted the hearing to learn about the condition of the Ford Road/I-275 interchange. The focus was on the need for improvement in that area, and to obtain support for a grant available through the United States Department of Transportation. The grant dollars would fund a solution to the congestion in that area. The result of the hearing was that the committee passed a resolution to memorialize Congress and the U.S. Department of Transportation to approve a grant for a project at the I-275 and Ford Road interchange under the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery Discretionary Grant program. The concurrent Resolution passed the full Senate on Tuesday, 11/8/11. It will now move on to the House of Representatives. We will keep you informed on the progress of the Resolution.

Our new trustee, Greg Demopoulos, was sworn in at the October 28th board meeting. Greg comes to us with an abundance of community service experience, including the Merit Commission, Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Canton Soccer Club Board of Directors. We are excited to welcome Greg to the Board of Trustees.

We are making good progress with the budget. All of the cuts and concessions that were made in the last year have put us on track to weather the decline in taxable value and loss of state shared revenue. We will continue with our furlough days for 2012, and our budget is currently being prepared through 2014.

We have finished compiling our focus group data related to our measurables (tangible data that gives the community a clear snapshot of how tax dollars are spent, how services are maintained, and where we stand in comparison to other communities). The information is now available online at on the Supervisor’s page. If you have any questions about the information, feel free to email or call the Supervisor’s office at 734-394-5188.

Make sure to take advantage of the Harvest Market on November 20th from 10 a.m. 2 p.m. at Preservation Park. Pick up items for your Thanksgiving meal along with all your Market favorites. Also, don’t forget to kick off the holiday season on November 30th with the annual Township Tree Lighting Event! The “official” tree will be lit in front of the Summit on the Park at 6:30 p.m. The event runs from 6 8:30 p.m.

There is nothing like the holiday season in Canton. I hope everyone takes the opportunity to visit one of our many wonderful restaurants for a warm bowl of soup, get your Christmas shopping done within our great selection of stores, or take in a show at the beautiful Village Theater. Happy Holidays!
