The City of Cedar Springs is replacing sidewalks and resurfacing the alley leading to the United States Post Office (between Ash and Cherry). They will not close both ends of the alley while installing new sidewalks and will not enforce the one-way access (so you can get to the back doors of the businesses), but the alley will be closed for two days during resurfacing. Look for barricades to be installed and sidewalk replacement to begin early next week. The city emphasizes that residents do not drive around the barricades.
Damage to vehicles for driver negligence is not covered by the City’s insurance carrier. “There are plenty of on-street parking spaces as well as public lots to utilize during construction,” said City Manager Christine Burns.
