LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Jack Brandenburg, R-Harrison Township, and Rep. Pete Lucido, R-Shelby Township, announced that a major road project connecting M-53 and 33 Mile Road in Bruce Township would be fully funded by one-time grants.
“This is just a great piece of news for Bruce Township and all of Northern Macomb County,” Brandenburg said. “No doubt, this is a game changer. This project will result in millions of dollars in development once access is re-established between M-53 and 33 Mile Road. This is what Representative Lucido and I call reinventing Michigan.
“I personally want to thank the governor for signing the appropriation and thanks to Representative Lucido for his leadership in the state House. I also want to express my gratitude and appreciation to my colleague, Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Senator David Hildenbrand. Dave is just a super leader. This effort took two years to develop and I want to say thanks again to everyone involved.”
The grant funding for these projects is coming from the Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) program.
“I am very excited about this project,” Lucido said. “A lot of work has gone into securing the funding to make this possible. This ramp will provide a gateway to economic development for Bruce Township and surrounding areas, which will have a huge impact on our community and our county as a whole.”
