LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced its plans to spend 75.4-million on road maintenance projects this construction season in nine southwest Michigan counties. It includes work on 141-miles of pavement and 21 bridges.
The largest single project is the 41-million dollar Constantine bypass which includes adding five new miles of highway to U.S. 131 and a new river bridge in southern St. Joseph County. The eastbound lanes of I-94 between Sawyer and Bridgman in Berrien County will be repaved at a cost of 15.5-million dollars.
Calhoun County will see resurfacing of I-94 between 6-1/2 Mile and 11 Mile Roads and extensive work on the I-194 business loop. In Kalamazoo County, the overpass that carries West Main over U.S. 131 will receive over two million in repairs, and sidewalks.
