Lawmakers to Decide Which Road Projects Get $115 Million

By  | 

State lawmakers are getting set to decide which road projects across Michigan will get $115 million in funding.

The legislature is expected to tackle the issue when it returns from spring break, this week. This is the second time $115 million has been given out this way. Last year, the majority of funded projects were in Republican-led districts.

Bill Conklin, Managing Director for the Ingham County Road Department disagrees with the process. Although he's thankful money was given to Ingham County last year for repairs on Michigan Avenue, Conklin says it would be more fair for the money to be handed out through Act 51 rules.
