Jeff Farrington.Farrington, R-Utica, said the project makes necessary and needed repairs to Auburn Road from M-59 to the Utica city line.“Residents of our community reached out to me about the importance of prioritizing roads, and I have been working to ensure the project at Auburn Road becomes a reality,” Farrington said. “It is exciting to announce that Auburn Road will receive these necessary repairs and improve the commute for local families.”Farrington said many local residents reached out about fixing Auburn Road, and he fought hard to ensure that their voices were heard.In addition to the Auburn Road project, there are another five projects totaling nearly $4.5 million that repair or fix roads in Macomb County.“However, Michigan’s roads and bridges were neglected for too long, and we need to continue to work on a plan that will result in a long-lasting, permanent solution for Michigan’s roads,” Farrington said. “I will continue to meet with local residents to receive input so I can bring a plan that focuses on fairness, efficiency and quality back to Lansing.”For the fiscal year 2014 budget, the Michigan Legislature created a special fund using $230 million in existing state revenue, half of which was appropriated on Oct 1. with the rest now being appropriated.###last_img read more
