As part of the Lakeshore Drive reconstruction project in the city of Muskegon, a significant effort was put into designing the roadway to provide a welcoming feel to the Lakeside neighborhood.
Prein&Newhof landscape architects and engineers led several planning meetings that included city leaders, residents, businesses, and the local neighborhood association. The planning meetings helped shape the direction of the project amenities.
The $6 million project included a new road surface, replacement of two large water mains under the road, new street lighting, crosswalks, benches, bicycle racks, and landscaping. The Lakeshore Drive project is part of the transformational mixed-use waterfront developments anticipated to the west of the Lakeside area.
