MDOT offers funds for Sturgis road paving

Sturgis city commissioners recently took up an offer of more than $500,000 from the Michigan Department of Transportation to help pay for the final phase of the South Nottawa Street brick restoration paving.
The city received a conditional commitment from MDOT in April for a grant that will augment city funds for the $1 million project. The city pledged just over $327,700 for its share of the cost for the final phase of restoring the brick paving of South Nottawa, from Mechanic Street to just south of Cottage Street.
The city will use tax money collected from a special, 3-mill tax levy approved by local voters for street improvements. Another $174,435 from city coffers will pay for water and sewer improvements that will be done in conjunction with the road construction project.
