Rural Task Force

The Region 14 Rural Transportation Task Force, administered by WMSRDC, continues to meet and cooperatively plan for road construction and transit needs within the five-county region. Over $4,000,000 of federal funding, combined with state and local funding, was invested in rural transportation projects in Lake, Mason, Muskegon, Newaygo, and Oceana counties. Committee members will also continue to ensure their All Season road maps are up to date, and submitted to the Michigan Department of Transportation.
