Nearly $98 million in federal money, pending congressional approval, will be coming to help fix Mound Road.

The main artery in Macomb County serves 40,000 vehicles a day and currently resembles the surface of the moon.

The U.S. Department of Transportation grant will be targeted to Mound from I-696 to M-59, or about nine miles.

All told, the project will cost $184.6 million. Macomb County and the cities of Sterling Heights and Warren are throwing in the rest of the money.

Beyond just rebuilding the road itself, Mound Road will get sidewalks, lights and signs, and tech to support connected and autonomous vehicles.
