Important Information

The City of Walker is removing the Walker Avenue Bridge over the Coopersville & Marne railroad tracks (located between Sharp Drive NW and Waldorf Street NW). An at-grade railroad crossing will then be constructed.

*COMPLETED* City of Walker – Walker Avenue and Coopersville & Marne Railway Improvements

Walker Avenue will be closed at Waldorf Street to the north and the Bissell driveway to the south, starting April 1 until mid–August.

Tree clearing has started on the project generally in areas that will not impact Walker Avenue.

Access to all businesses will be maintained throughout construction.

A detour will be posted using Three Mile Road, Alpine Avenue and Leonard Street for all truck traffic. Please note that Bristol Avenue has a low clearance bridge south of Waldorf Street.

Feel free to call Prein&Newhof Project Manager Jason Washler if you have questions or concerns.
