The City of Eaton Rapids has been the recipient of a $2.9 million grant through the State of Michigan for the reconstruction of a number of assets at the G.A.R. Island Park. Over the next year, the City’s contractor will reconstruct the sea walls around the island, replace the pedestrian bridge connecting the park to River Street, and the construction of a Riverwalk connecting Hamlin Square to Mill Pointe Park.
Construction activities will begin on Monday, February 22nd and will last until September 2021. During that time, residents will need to avoid the construction site around the island. The island will be closed during this time. Also, the lower area of parking lot 6 on the river’s edge between E. Knight and Hamlin St. will be closed during this period.
We want to thank you for your patience during this time. Please address comments, questions, and concerns to City Hall either in person at 200 S. Main Street or by calling (517) 663-8118.
