A three-month-long road project in Branch County’s largest community began on Monday.
Michigan Department of Transportation officials said a 2.2-mile stretch of U.S.12 in the city of Coldwater will be resurfaced. The construction zone will stretch from Western Avenue to Michigan Avenue.
According to MDOT, the $1.4 million investment includes sanitary sewer repairs, sidewalk ramp upgrades and pavement markings.
There will be lane closures throughout the project with at least one lane open in each direction except for a one-week total closure of U.S. 12 between Western Avenue/Butters Avenue and Division Street.
The estimated completion date is Sept. 10.
