Additional road repair money is headed to Livingston County for immediate use this year, according to Rep. Hank Vaupel

State Rep. Hank Vaupel of Fowlerville this week said additional road repair money is headed to Livingston County and to the village of Fowlerville and the city of Howell for immediate use this year.

Vaupel supported a new law providing $175 million in transportation funding statewide — with much of the money 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 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. The state also has strengthened its warranty system designed to make sure new and refurbished roads will last longer.

“Livingston County, the village of Fowlerville and the city of Howell will receive additional money to repair roads,” Vaupel said. “Fixing roads is a top priority and there’s no reason to wait when we can fill more potholes and repave more roads as soon as possible.”

Some of the municipalities in line for additional funding include Livingston County ($1,505,074). Cities and villages receive money on top of that, including Fowlerville ($22,533) and Howell ($62,188).
