ST. JOSEPH — The Michigan Department of Transportation is planning for a major road project next year that will impede and at times detour traffic along M-139 in Royalton Township.

The project would focus on culvert replacement, road reconstruction with roadway elevation raised over the culvert, drainage upgrades, added guardrails and permanent pavement markings.
