    With all this news about bad roads and funding, they just repaved 13 mile off Northland from Edgerton to Algoma Ave NE. There was nothing wrong with that road. I felt was a waste of tax payers money. Parts of Indian Lakes & White Creek road are horrible in same area off Northland!

      Most of the time money for road projects comes with a lot of restrictions as far as where it is used. IOW, the Road Commission or municipality can’t use it where ever they want.
