Road work in Richland Township -The Richland Township Board Road Committee annually reviews the road conditions in the Township. With input from the RCKC, the Board acquires estimates for possible Township funded capital projects for the following year. When the budget is assembled, the Board selects the projects. Road maintenance, hole repair, and mowing is paid by the RCKC from the state funds that they receive so the Township only budgets for the capital projects.

Road projects in Richland Township for 2019
From April 23, 2019 to June 21,2019 the Michigan Department of Transportation will be resurfacing more than 11 miles of US-131 from Milham Road to north of M-43 (West Main Street) in Kalamazoo. The $5.8 million investment includes full-depth joint repairs, concrete removal, aggregate shoulders, and pavement markings.
MDOT is working on the engineering for a roundabout at M-43(Gull Road) and G Avenue. The planned 2021 reconstruction includes building a roundabout at the M-43/G Avenue intersection to improve safety and reduce congestion. Improvements also will be made at the M-43 intersections with 27th Street and 28th Street. MDOT is proposing to acquire property from Eastern Hills Golf Course for needed right of way, and the project also will have minor impacts on the existing nonmotorized trail along M-43. Project maps are available at the Township Office for viewing. You may also view the project rendering by clicking HERE.
