Michigan Legislature Adds $115 Million in Transport-Project Funding

More than 100 Michigan state and local transportation projects will move forward with some funding from the state's Roads and Risks Reserve (RRR) Fund.

The legislature created the RRR Fund using $230 million in general-fund revenue. Half of that total was available for appropriation on Oct. 1 of last year, while the other half can be appropriated for roads on Feb. 1.

Examples of work completed with the help of this funding are road resurfacing, bridge maintenance, roadway reconstruction, bike lane additions, American Disability Act compliant ramps, etc.
