DETROIT, Mich. – If you’re someone who doesn’t like dealing with construction, then 2022 is going to be a difficult year for you. Many Michigan counties, including Detroit’s Wayne County, are planning to spend millions on construction projects once spring rolls around.

Wayne County is investing roughly $90 million into its roads and bridges as Michigan heads into the 2022 construction season, according to the Wayne County Department of Public Services. The county has plans to work on more than 25 roads and over 10 bridges by fall 2022.

Wayne County adds the work done in 2022 will continue Wayne County’s 10-Year Asset Management Plan (TAMP). “The plan, initially implemented in 2019, focuses on preventative maintenance for the county’s roads and bridges,” Department of Public Services Director Beverly Watts said in a statement.

Construction season officially starts in April and will wrap up by November. For more information, visit the Wayne County website.
