Legislators received a stern warning when bottles filled with the remains of Lake Montcalm Road, Montcalm County were delivered to their state offices today. The bottles contained millings collected when the road was pulverized and turned back to gravel due to lack of funding, a cost-saving move now occurring in 24 Michigan counties.
“Delivering this ‘message in a bottle’ draws critical attention to the immediate need for our roads to be fixed,” said Mike Nystrom, co-chair of the Michigan Transportation Team (MTT). “No excuses, Fix MI Roads. That’s our message and it continues to be the message of Michigan’s employers, taxpayers and drivers,” Nystrom said.
