Sturgis awarded grant for Wade Street reconstruction

State Rep. Aaron Miller announced this week that a state grant has been awarded to reconstruct a portion of Wade Street in Sturgis.
Miller said the Michigan Department of Transportation has awarded a $259,000 Transportation Economic Development Fund grant for work on Wade Street from South Centerville Road to a location just east of Clark Street.
The roadwork will accommodate the growth of Sturgis Molded Products, which is expanding its existing facility by constructing a 45,000-square-foot combined manufacturing and warehouse facility. The new facility will create 30 jobs and result in a $3 million investment in the new building and equipment.
Wade Street connects to South Centreville Road and provides the company’s only access to the state highway. Miller said reconstruction of Wade Street will improve the automobile supply firm’s access for inbound material deliveries and outbound trucks shipping finished product to customers.
