After four years on the planning table, the village's School Street extension is open to traffic. School Street now runs both north and south of Savidge Street.

The $374,000 project was funded primarily by state grants. The village’s share was 25 percent.

The redone street includes bumpouts and decorative concrete stamping and landscaping.

Liberty Street, which was also involved in the streetscape project, is also open to traffic.

Village President Bill Filber said the 350-foot extension will help residents access the Mill Point Station medical center and alleviate some of the traffic on Savidge Street.

“Trying to get out on M-104 is really challenging,” Filber said. “Having School Street and Liberty Street being able to be accessed will help tremendously. People can go north on School Street, east on Liberty and back to the stop light on Jackson.”
