LANSING – The City of Coldwater is receiving State funding to help with a road project.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Wednesday the awarding of 11 grants totaling $4 million to cities and road commissions around the State to help rebuild local roads.

The City of Coldwater will use the $375,000 from the State towards the resurfacing of Butters Avenue from Garfield Avenue to Race Street.

The project includes re-shaping the roadway, curb and gutter installation along with drainage improvements.

Butters Avenue is an all-season road used as the alternative emergency route for U.S. 12.

The road condition has deteriorated and needs repair to improve efficiency and safety of commercial truck traffic.

The total cost of the project is $1,050,000. With the State grant, the City of Coldwater will cover the remaining $675,000.
