MDOT Awards $900,000 Grant For Upgrades In Crawford Co.

MDOT is looking to make upgrades in Crawford County.

The agency just awarded a $900,000 grant to the Crawford County Road Commission.

The money will go toward reconstructing the route between I-75 and the Arauco particle board plant to be built in Grayling Township.

That will help out 266 workers who will begin working there over the next three years.

With the grant, the road commission will pay about $340,000 for the project.

The plant should be ready by 2018.
