first_img With the help of state Rep. Bronna Kahle, road repair crews in Lenawee County will have more money to fight the battle against potholes this construction season.Legislation signed into law today provides an additional $175 million in transportation funding statewide beyond what was originally planned. Much of the money is headed directly to counties, cities and villages for road preservation and construction.The money is left over from a previous state government budget cycle and already available, meaning no budget cuts or additional fees or taxes are required for the investment. The extra money comes in addition to record-level road funding provided by previous long-term reforms.“There is more money available to fix roads right now – and it’s going to be used right now,” said Kahle, of Adrian. “People are tired of potholes. I share their concerns, and that’s why I support this legislation to do something about one of Michigan’s most pressing problems.”Estimated local allocations include:Lenawee County ($792,458)Addison ($5,929)Adrian ($144,747)Blissfield ($25,308)Britton ($4,430)Cement City ($5,067)Clayton ($3,954)Clinton ($15,949)Deerfield ($7,742)Hudson ($20,103)Morenci ($18,001)Onsted ($7,579) andTecumseh ($63,317). ### 20Mar Rep.
