LANSING – State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) said today that three Superior County road projects are on a newly released list of state funded roads projects. The projects are work on South Chaney Lake Road, Broad Street/Main Street Corridor and in the city of Ironwood.
“I am very glad to see this money coming to our community to fix these roads,” said Dianda. “This is a good start on the maintenance and repair that our roads need, but there is still much more to do here in House District 110 and across the state.”
A project to work on Country Road 519, South Chaney Lake Road, two miles south of Wakefield city limits to the Wisconsin border, will get $850,000. A project covering the Broad Street/Main Street Corridor from US-41 to Jentoft Road will get $675,000. The city of Ironwood will get $50,000 for projects.
“These road projects will provide needed jobs to many U.P. communities, but we still need to go back to work in Lansing,” said Dianda. “These projects are just a beginning. The Legislature needs to be back in session and working on a roads funding package that will take care of the roads in communities across our state.”
