Big changes are coming to Sherman Boulevard.
During state lawmakers’ marathon lame-duck session last week, legislators awarded the city of Muskegon Heights $3 million for a substantial redesign and reconstruction of Sherman Boulevard—the city’s busiest street and one of the most traveled roads in Muskegon County. The funding is part of a $1.3 billion supplemental budget passed by the state House of Representatives and state Senate in the early morning hours of Friday, Dec. 21. The supplemental legislation will have to land its final stamp of approval from Gov. Rick Snyder before the end of the year.
