BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Plans for infrastructure improvements in Big Rapids are getting $2.6 million in federal support.

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced Thursday that the money will go toward replacing the Baldwin Street Bridge in the Mecosta County community and making other access and water system improvements to support the Big Rapids Industrial Park.

It is part of $8 million in new funding going to projects in five states. The money is from the department's Economic Development Administration.

Officials say the Big Rapids projects are expected to leverage more than $4.7 million in private investment.
