At the February 14, 2007 Resort meeting, the Resort Board approved a contract with the Monroe County Road Commission to participate in the three-lane paving project of N. Dixie from Detroit Beach to Stony Creek. The total cost of this project is an estimated 2 million dollars with the Monroe County Road Commission and Frenchtown Charter Township along with Federal Aid sharing approximately 1.7 million. The Resort share is $420,000 with $300,000 towards the paving and $120,000 towards curbing at 17 private association entrances within the project. This project is slated to be completed in the summer of 2008.
The rebuilding of a 3 lane road on N. Dixie Hwy from Detroit Beach to Stony Creek has been bid out and a contract was awarded. The Resort District Authority share has been reduced by $79,000. Therefore the new figure for the Resort District share is $341,000, which the Resort Board approved at the May 14,2008 meeting. Work is expected to start after Memorial Day with completion this fall.
