Preventing road hazards in Lenawee County

Posted: Updated:
LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -

The Lenawee County Road Commission is starting some new projects after a mild winter left them with extra money in their budget.

Commission members say there are a lot of dead and dying trees located near major roads, and those trees could fall onto a car or into the road, blocking traffic. Their new project will take preventative measures against such hazards.

"We're taking them down over time," said Managing Director Scott Merillat. "It's nice to have the time to take care of those things."

The commission has about 13 percent more leftover in their budget than they were expecting, so the extra money will fund the tree removal.
