Ottawa County is spending
about $70,000 this summer to improve the safety of its highways.
Officials are hoping the project
will ensure that their speed limits and safety improvements will fall in line
with government standards.
The survey project will be
checking to see if highway signs are all located in the right places, as well
as monitor road conditions to make sure they are up to par. It will also
examine which driving speeds are safe on certain curves.
"It's a matter of keeping
the roads as safe as possible," said Ottawa County Engineer David Brunkhorst. "Making
sure that there's proper signage, and also how the tipping of the road and so
forth is, so we know what's going on and we can improve it."
After the surveying is
complete, improvements should begin this summer.
