The Michigan Department of Transportation will be making improvements to the Military and Water Streets intersection, but it won't be costing the full million dollar price tag that had been expected. As it turns out the project will only cost about half that, so what's to become of the other money? MDOT's Drew Buckner says the Military and Water streets project is in the design phase and the other half of the money will be spent on another project in the city. Buckner says MDOT will be making changes to the turn light and realigning the streets of Military and Water that accommodate the city's changes a couple years ago to Water between Military and Fourth streets when the city added angled parking and changed it from a two-way to a one-way westbound street. The Water and Military project will begin late this year and most of the work is expected to be done next year.
