State Rep. Ben Frederick reports that multiple road projects will start this week, beginning Monday, Aug. 14, to improve the quality of a portion of the highway in Shiawassee County.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) project involves resurfacing pavement along the interstate between Newburg and Morrice roads, at a cost of $260,000. Rep. Frederick reports that work should be completed by the end of the month. The second portion of the project will focus on I-69 between Britton Road and M-52. The project will cost $700,000 and should be complete by September. Funding will come from a combination of state and local sources.
“Residents have told me improving the quality of roads needs to be a priority, and I am committed to making roads safer for local families,” said Frederick, of Owosso. “This project illustrates state and local governments working together to improve our community.”
Frederick said the 2017-18 budget that was recently signed by the governor contains a record amount of funding to fix and maintain roads, bridges, and underground water systems throughout the state.
