State Rep. Darrin Camilleri announces campaign for Michigan Senate

State Representative Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton)

Posted by The Huron Hub | Monday, Jan. 10, 2022

Trenton, MI – State Representative Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton) is announcing his bid for the Michigan State Senate, running in the newly formed District 4 encompassing the majority of Downriver and southern Wayne County.

The Fourth District includes the communities of Grosse Ile, Gibraltar, Trenton, Riverview, Wyandotte, Southgate, Brownstown, Taylor (part), Woodhaven, Huron, Sumpter, Romulus, Wayne, Van Buren and Belleville.

“I am so excited to announce my bid for the State Senate to continue representing Downriver and southwestern Wayne County,” Rep. Camilleri said. “As a former teacher and the son and grandson of union autoworkers, I know the stories and struggles of working families because I’ve lived them.”

“In the State Legislature, I’ve worked to create change in and for our communities. Even with the roadblocks we’ve faced, we’ve gotten things done: securing a deal to build the much-needed multimillion dollar underpass on Allen Road in Woodhaven and delivering record funding for Downriver schools. But we have more work to do — we need to support our educators and keep our kids in school, empower our workers in the industries of the future, and build the infrastructure of today and tomorrow. As your next State Senator I’ll bring bold leadership to Lansing to continue delivering results – because that’s what our families deserve.”

Rep. Camilleri is finishing his third and final term in the Michigan House of Representatives because of term limits. He was first elected to the House in 2016, winning his first general election by 323 votes and becoming the only Democrat to flip a legislative seat in Michigan that year. Since then, Camilleri has outperformed the top of the Democratic ticket in both of his re-election campaigns.

Romulus announces completion of Hannan and Northline intersection

Posted by The Huron Hub | Nov. 1, 2021

The City of Romulus announced recently the completion of the intersection at Northline and Hannan Road during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Construction for the project launched April 15 to improve road safety and reduce vehicle crashes.

For decades, the Hannan and Northline intersection has been an area of concern for local residents, who have often cited its high accident rate.

When taking office in 2014, Romulus Mayor LeRoy Burcroff began organizing meetings with Wayne County officials to bring attention to hazardous road conditions at the Northline and Hannan intersection.

“We’re pleased to announce yet another critical infrastructure improvement in the City of Romulus, one that we are confident will help reduce accidents at a historically dangerous and well-trafficked intersection,” Burcroff said. “Residents voiced their concerns, and in partnership with Wayne County, we were able to create a comprehensive plan to resolve a long-standing issue in our community.”

Over the course of the last seven years, Mayor Burcroff and Wayne County officials have had frequent conversations about the need to repair the interchange.

County officials even participated in a city-wide ride along with Burcroff, exploring areas in need of improvement that are shared by both jurisdictions.

Recognizing the need to make safety repairs, Wayne County and the City of Romulus developed a plan to turn the boulevard intersection into a necked-down standard intersection with a traffic light.

Committed to the restoration and preservation of city infrastructure, the City of Romulus has completed several road and sidewalk projects in recent years.

Most recently, the city unveiled the Huron River Drive Pathway, a 10-foot-wide shared pathway running from the I-275 Metro Trail into downtown Romulus.

The pathway was constructed in partnership with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and supported through a $297,600 federal grant.

Recognizing the need for a safer path for bikers and pedestrians, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) also provided $100,000 toward the project.

“It’s important that our residents have access to a safe route to downtown businesses and residential districts,” said Director of the Romulus Department of Public Works Roberto Scappaticci. “It’s also important that our residents feel heard. If they come to the city with an infrastructural need, we do our best to address the issue at hand.”
