CASSOPOLIS – Cass County Road Commission’s 2010 paving season is under way with 85 projects totaling $2.8 million to be completed by the third week of September.
Work on 63 miles of roadway includes asphalting of 42 miles, chip and seal work over 16 miles and re-graveling five miles of unpaved road in Porter Township. Forty percent of the work is on primary roads.
The $2.8 million represents a combination of Michigan Department of Transportation funds, federal dollars and revenues from the townships.
