A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for Thursday at 2 p.m. to mark the completion of phase two of the Huron River Drive Road Improvement Project in New Boston.

“While the street will remain closed through the weekend to accommodate the annual Huron Township Applefest, it will re-open on schedule to the general public on Monday, Oct. 3,” said David Glaab, Huron Township supervisor.

The improvements to this stretch of Huron River Drive from the intersection at Waltz and Hannan Roads east through downtown New Boston to Kass Street include a total rebuild of Huron River Drive and its sidewalks, as well as the installation of new street lights.

Also included in the project was the removal of the utility poles and wires that clogged the downtown skyline.

The utilities were relocated underground.

“We continue to work toward enhancing walkability and pedestrian safety throughout downtown New Boston while facilitating connectivity with the Metro Parks. Additionally, a much more inviting environment has been created to strengthen existing business and to attract future economic development,” Glaab said.

Phase one of the project was completed last fall and consisted of similar improvements to Huron River Drive from the same intersection north to Huron Dental.
