The Okemos Road Project is getting more complex. The Ingham County Road Commission is already planning on widening Okemos Road from Jolly to Mt. Hope to five lanes this summer and will also add a left turn lane.
Meridian Township has now received a grant to add a median to 3,000 feet of that project. The median will go from Heritage to Sower. Township officials say the median will not only make the area safer, but also prettier.
Both projects will take place simultaneously beginning in June and ending before football season.
