SALINE, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Transportation has decided a $9 million project to renovate a major street in downtown Saline will take place next year.

The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1FdXHzr ) reports the plan to reconstruct a portion of Michigan Avenue was originally scheduled for 2009, but it was pushed back until 2018 due to a series of delays. But city manager Todd Campbell says department representatives suggested in August that work on the road begin in 2016 instead.

Campbell says the city also will be working to replace a 100-year-old water main and improve the storm sewer during road construction.

He says a 30-member task force has been created to help business owners, schools and residents prepare for the project that’s expected to take an entire construction season.
