LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer traveled to a road repair project on I-69 near Charlotte to highlight the administration's Rebuilding Michigan plan, which has already begun rebuilding highways that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic.
"Rebuilding Michigan's infrastructure makes our roads safer and economy stronger for everyone, which is why it has been a priority for my administration since day one," said Governor Whitmer. "The Rebuilding Michigan plan allows us to continue fixing the roads this construction season, without an increase at the gas pump. We need to keep our foot on the gas when it comes to investing in our state's infrastructure and creating good-paying jobs."
The I-69 project in Eaton County is part of a $210 million Rebuilding Michigan investment that would rebuild 23 miles between Marshall and Charlotte and support 2,667 jobs. The $3.5 billion Rebuilding Michigan plan will tackle 49 projects and allow another 73 projects to be expedited or broadened in scope.
