Road commission awarded grant

The Michigan Department of Transportation is awarding a grant of $252,000 to the St. Joseph County Road Commission to improve North Centreville and Wait roads.

Located in Sherman Township, both routes are north of the city of Sturgis and are seasonally restricted roadways serving as a link between U.S. 12 to M-66.

According to an MDOT media release, several businesses in Sturgis use the route to haul equipment and materials, but are subject to seasonal weight restrictions.

In order to address the restrictions, the road commission will widen and resurface North Centerville Road from the Sturgis city limit to Wait Road, and Wait Road from North Centreville Road to M-66.

Total cost of construction is $315,000, with $252,000 in grant funds and $63,000 from the road commission.

The project is one of 10 state-funded road grants announced last week.
