Officials say the project will be an extension of Wayne County’s 10-year Asset Management Plan (TAMP) for its infrastructure.

“The plan, originally implemented in 2019, focuses on preventative maintenance of roads and bridges in the county,” said Beverly Watts, director of the Department of Public Services.

The construction season will start from April to November.

“As we continue to improve our roads and bridges, additional state and federal funds are needed to support our plan; which is a roadmap designed to continue to help us achieve the goal of being proactive and not reactive when it comes to infrastructure in Wayne County,” said Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans. .
