MDOT awards grant in Branch County

The Michigan Department of Transportation is awarding a transportation economic development grant that will support 750 new jobs in Branch County.
MDOT officials said the Transportation Economic Development Fund grant totaling nearly $2.6 million will leverage $255 million in private investment.
Pennsylvania-based Clemens Food Group is partnering with a number of family-owned farms in Michigan and Ohio to process pork products at a facility in Coldwater.
Clemens’ new facility will be located southeast of the I-69 interchange at Jonesville Road, north of Coldwater. Transportation was a key component in the selection of this site, and MDOT will repave the I-69 ramps at Jonesville Road. Several upgrades and additions to the local road system also are planned to accommodate Clemens’ new facility between Jonesville Road and Newton Road.
