Improvements to several roads around a lake community in Tyrone Township are coming.

The Tyrone Township Board of Trustees passed a series of resolutions in preparation of repairs to a number of paved roads around Lake Shannon. Tyrone Township Supervisor Mike Cunningham said that residents on the streets to be worked on circulated a petition and got signatures from 55% stating they were in favor of the project. Cunningham said the Livingston County Road Commission was still refining the numbers on what it will cost, but it will paid for through the establishment of a special assessment district.

The project will consist of crushing and shaping asphalt on some roadways, and milling and removing asphalt in others, with new asphalt laid. Roads to be affected are Driftwood, Parkwood Drive, Parkwood Court, Ore Knob Road, Ore Knob Court, Surfwood, Ledgewood, Lake Shannon Court, and portions of Maguire and Dean. A public hearing has been set for residents wishing to voice their opinions on the project and the proposed SAD during the Board of Trustees next meeting. That hearing and meeting will take place on Tuesday April 17th, at 7pm at the township office building. (MK)
