Drivers could see less road improvement projects come summer, if the winter weather keeps taxing county street departments.

That's especially true for Berrien County, which spent more than four hundred thousand dollars clearing the roads during the frigid polar vortex storm a few weeks ago.

And the cost continues to grow, shelling out more for fuel, salt and sand to keep transportation open.

Managing director Louis Csokasy says the current payroll is the largest in the road commission's history.

According to our reporting partners at the Herald-Palladium, come summer, county projects in cities and townships may have to wait, or be scaled back.
