Major Primary Road Improvement Projects - 2017

KCRC's Ten Year Plan of Primary Road Improvements is available in the organization's Long Range Plan. The 2017 Primary Road Improvement Plan includes the major improvements (below) that require advanced planning and design, usually coinciding with federal and state grant funding. The 2017 Plan also includes funding allocated to specific improvements at yet-to-be determined locations. These locations will be identified after a review of road conditions, taking place after the 2016-17 winter season. KCRC also works with its townships to identify local road improvements for the upcoming year; local road improvements are funded by both KCRC and the township.
