State Rep. Joe Bellino today hosted a press conference announcing more details of state funding coming to support improvements on South Stoney Creek Road in Monroe County.
Bellino helped secure $3.35 million in state support for the project. The money is included in a state budget approved by the Michigan Legislature and awaiting Gov. Rick Snyder’s signature.
“Stoney Creek Road is extremely important to our county, with thousands of people traveling it every day,” said Bellino, of Monroe. “Taxpayers and drivers deserve for this road to be in far better condition than it is now. We are going to help get it there with this assistance.”
The state money will help improve the road in Frenchtown, Ash and Exeter townships.
Bellino attended Wednesday’s press conference with state Sen. Dale Zorn, local government officials, Monroe County Road Commission representatives and others. The press conference was held near the intersection of South Stoney Creek Road and Sumpter Road.
