Shiawassee County is one of eight rural Michigan counties that will use $2.4 millionin state Category F Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) grants to upgraderoads in urban areas to “all season” status to support local economic growth andkeep Michigan open for business year-round, the Michigan Department of Transportation(MDOT) announced Tuesday.
MDOT said the city of Owosso will resurface a half-mile of Gould Street in Owossofrom M-71 (Corunna Avenue) to M-21 (Main Street). Gould Street is a major north-southcommercial corridor that connects M-71 to M-21. The $440,000 project will receive$352,000 in state Category F funding and $88,000 in match from the city.Gould Street is a major route for trucks and employees going to the Southeast Owosso IndustrialPark, which has a number of manufacturing plants and major employers in it. Thelast leg of the access route needing major attention is Monroe Street, between Gould andthe area of Tri-Mer Corp. east of the Hugh Parker Soccer Complex. For the past severalyears, the city has been doing cold-patches of old cold patches on that area of Monroe.
