DNR OKs city’s Ludington Ave. project

December 7, 2018

The city’s West Ludington Avenue Beautification Project is one step closer to starting construction in 2019, said Heather Tykoski, Ludington community development director.

The project would reconstruct Ludington Avenue west of Stearns Drive to be more “multiuse” and better suited for pedestrians and for hosting events, Tykoski said. New sidewalks and pavement would be added, including a promenade equipped to hold temporary event tents and a sunset viewing area. Benches and native plants would also be located throughout the space.

The City of Ludington recently received permission from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources — which has provided a $300,000 grant for the project through the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund and is overseeing it — to award the construction contract to the lowest-bidding company, Tykoski said.
