LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

Gov. Rick Snyder, the Michigan Senate and the Michigan House of Representatives approved $4.25 million in funding to repair roads in Michigan's 31st District.

The district includes Arenac, Bay, Tuscola, Huron and Sanilac counties. There are five projects in the district the money will go towards.

"I'm happy to see our district allocated these funds to help repair what MDOT, the governor and I feel are vital roadways," State Sen. Mike Green said in a news release. "While this is simply a supplemental amount, it will benefit our district's transportation needs immeasurably without tax increases and is an important step in fixing Michigan's crumbling roadways."

The projects include:

  • $800,000 for M-46 east of Goetz Road to Port Sanilac west village limits
  • $1 million for M-90 from North Branch east village limits to M-53
  • $650,000 for I-69 under Black Corners Road (S-14)
  • $1.3 million for M-13 (Euclid) from Salzburg Avenue to North Union Avenue
  • $500,000 for 600 different locations in and around Bay City

The total amount allocated for MDOT's Priority Road Investment Program is about $115 million. It's part of a more than $700 million general fund allocated to Michigan roads this legislative term, the news release said.
