The Monroe County Road Commission will receive about $1.5 million in additional state road funding in 2018, not $2 million as was reported incorrectly in Wednesday’s paper.
The funds will need to be used on all county roads, not just S. Stony Creek Rd., a spokesperson for the road commission said.
The Plank Rd. improvement last year was funded by the road commission’s allocation from the Michigan Transportation Fund in partnership with Dundee, Raisinville and London townships.
“Without participation from the townships, Plank Rd. would not have received the much needed improvements,” the spokesperson said. “No additional state funds were received to make this project move forward.”
The Ostrander Rd. project is one of many roads being funded by a $5 million road note that was approved recently by the board of road commissioners. “Again, no additional state funds were received for this project,” the spokesperson said.
