Sturgis to decide on concrete for Wade Road project

Sturgis city commissioners must decide if they’ll spend a large share of this year’s local road millage to make an industrial access road a concrete surface, at the expense of doing some other city streets.
City engineer Barry Cox last week said the initial plan for resurfacing Wade Road, off M- 66 South, called for asphalt paving. That total project cost was estimated at $324,000, with the city providing a $65,000 match for a potential state grant.
Cox proposed a concrete option, saying it would mean a longer life for the dead-end street that provides access to three local industries and handles about 1,000 vehicles a day.
A concrete option, however, could boost the city’s share of the total cost to more than $200,000, or about one-third of the funding generated by the city’s earmarked road millage.
