The general public has two more weeks to ask questions and comment on an upcoming $22.8 million maintenance project that involves five bridges in the U.S. 31 and M-104 triangle area intersecting Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Ferrysburg.

Michigan Department of Transportation officials outlined the project and answered questions during a virtual public meeting Wednesday afternoon.

Hmmm...and where did this money come from all of a sudden? Plus all of the current construction going on in GH. This is fishy. Makes you wonder, don't it?
