Brighton is warning of potential traffic delays as trees begin clearing new sidewalks
Brighton -Brighton is preparing to fill sidewalk gaps on some neighborhood streets. Tree removal work is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 22. The work is expected to cause some traffic delays.
Plans include closing a gap in the sidewalk along Flint Road, between Williamson and Spring Mountain Drive, and adding a pedestrian crossing on Flint Road at Spring Mountain Drive.

The city also plans to add sidewalks on Williamsen Drive from Flint Road to an existing sidewalk that begins at Pondview Court, and from where it ends about 150 feet south of Forest Drive to North Church Street at the curve where Williamsen Drive becomes Nelson Street.
“(Tree removal) is expected to continue through the end of the week,” the city wrote in a statement. “There will be intermittent traffic interruptions and delays in this area during this time.”
Officials said construction of the sidewalks and pedestrian crossing will begin later this year.
The city was awarded $329,560 by the Southeast Michigan Government Council for the project. The city will provide a 20% match.
