I see the Shelby/Utica bike path received money. Too bad Chesterfield's money to compete our bike path was lost some how.

I know that the bridge on 23 mile rd, needed to be fixed. What about widening 21 mile rd. where there are 4 schools. It is very dangerous everyday and just praying that no one else gets killed(already have lost many lives) in that area. And with 23 mile rd. closed for the bridge work,it's even worse than ever everyday!!!!!!!!!!!!
