BERRIEN SPRINGS — Work on the extension of sewer lines to the northwest side of the M-139/U.S. 31 interchange in Oronoko Township should shift into high gear this year. The project was first proposed in late 2018 to facilitate the expansion of the Honor Credit Union headquarters on Edgewood Drive.

Oronoko Township Supervisor Mike Hildebrand said Tuesday that he will be bringing measures to the township board in the next few months to get the project all ready for construction later this year. The project is expected to cost $1.5 million with the township, Honor Credit Union and a local family contributing money.
