More funds needed for Ludington Ave. improvements

October 5, 2018 GMT

The plan to make improvements on West Ludington Avenue needs more funding to begin because construction costs exceed the project’s budget.

“We’re still $60,000 to $80,000 shy of the project beginning,” said Heather Tykoski, City of Ludington community development director.

The project would reconstruct Ludington Avenue west of Stearns Drive to be more “multiuse” and suited better 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.

“It’s finally being able to beautify the area and make it more usable for the public,” she said.
