Zorn visits sites of new MDOT garages in Monroe County

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn joined Michigan Department of Transportation Director Paul Ajegba and other MDOT officials on Friday for a tour of two MDOT garages being built in Monroe County.

“Once completed, these two new garages will be home to MDOT trucks and workers dedicated to keeping our roads safe,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “I was able to help secure funding for these facilities to be built and properly staffed so that Monroe County gets effective and timely road maintenance — especially clearing and deicing our highways during Michigan’s tough winters.”

The fiscal year 2022 general omnibus budget signed in late September includes $2.9 million for increased MDOT staff in Monroe County to perform road maintenance.

One of the garages is being built on Telegraph Road in Carleton near I-275 and the other is being constructed on N. Ann Arbor Road in Dundee near U.S. 23.
