Rep Miller announces road improvement project for Sturgis

first_img State Rep. Aaron Miller today announced a state grant has been awarded to reconstruct a portion of Wade Street in Sturgis.Rep. Miller, R-Sturgis, said the Michigan Department of Transportation has awarded a $259,040 Transportation Economic Development Fund grant to the city of Sturgis to reconstruct Wade Street from M-66/South Centreville Road to approximately 370 feet east of Clark Street.The roadwork will accommodate the growth of Sturgis Molded Products, which is expanding its existing facility by constructing a 45,000-square-foot combined manufacturing and warehouse facility. The new facility will create 30 jobs and result in a $3 million investment in the new building and equipment.“This is excellent news for the city and the local economy,” Rep. Miller said. “Sturgis Molded Products is making a huge investment in our community, and creating much-needed jobs. The road grant is vital to the success of the company’s growth.”Wade Street connects to M-66 at South Centreville Road, and provides the company’s only access to the state highway, Rep. Miller said. Reconstruction of Wade Street will improve the automobile supply firm’s access for inbound material deliveries and outbound trucks shipping finished product to customers.Rep. Miller said the project accomplishes two goals of the Republican Action Plan announced earlier this year by House leadership.“This very much ties in with the Legislature’s focus of boosting Michigan’s overall economy and making our roads safer,” Rep. Miller said. “Sturgis-area residents will benefit with new jobs and smoother roadways.”##### Categories: Miller News,News 25Mar Rep. Miller announces road improvement project for Sturgislast_img
