LANSING, MI (WTVB) - 16th District State Senator Bruce Caswell announced today that several road projects in his district including Branch County will receive funding through appropriations in the 2013-14 state budget. According to Caswell, numerous projects across Michigan will benefit with additional projects to be announced in early 2014.
Caswell says the funding list includes the Athens Road Bridge over the St. Joseph River in Branch County’s Sherwood Township, a nearly $1.9 million project. Caswell says he often hears from citizens that we need to fix our roads. He says the road improvement money announced today will help to better our roads and ensure driver safety and represents a good first step in the ongoing discussions in Lansing about how to address Michigan’s continued infrastructure needs.
