The AEDC is excited to share this great news, an excellent example of successful collaboration! MDOT Awards Grant for North Clark/29 Mile Road Reconstruction In Support of Knauf’s $32.4 million investment.

The Albion Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) is pleased to announce the award of grant funding through the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to assist with a road reconstruction project that will support 34 new jobs at Knauf Insulation, Inc. in the City of Albion.

Earlier this year, the Michigan Strategic Fund announced a $204,000 Business Development Program performance-based grant and a 100-percent 15-year State Essential Services Act exemption with a value of $708,325 in support of this project. In addition, the project required road assistance and the community applied for MDOT economic development funds.

The $340,000 grant from the MDOT Transportation Economic Development Fund (TEDF) Category A or "Targeted Industries Program" will alleviate poor road conditions and upgrade North Clark/29 Mile Road between East North Street and B Drive North, to all-season standards. The balance of the $650,000 project not covered by TEDF Category A funding, is expected to come from the City of Albion ($244,590) and the Calhoun County Road Department ($65,410).

The portion of North Clark/29 Mile Road to be reconstructed is the main access route to Knauf Insulation, Inc., a manufacturer of residential, commercial, and industrial insulation products.

Amy Deprez, President of the AEDC, said, “All parties involved - the AEDC, City of Albion, Calhoun County Road Department, Knauf management, MDOT – worked together seamlessly to accommodate a tight turnaround time and create a winning grant application. The awarding of these funds finalizes the comprehensive support needed for the Knauf expansion project.”

Darwin McClary, City Manager for the City of Albion said, “Knauf is a valued member of the Albion community and this project means new jobs for our residents with a strong and growing corporate citizen.”

"Thanks to our relationship with the AEDC, and through the support of MDOT and the City of Albion, improvements to the roadways near Knauf's Albion facility will enable increased traffic flow, improved safety and efficiencies for one of Knauf’s top performing facilities" - Kevin Keen, Albion plant manager.

Thank you from my nieces kids: Jaden, Carter, Roslynn and Briar for a great time at the carnival today. Everyone was so patient and kind. There was something for everyone. We left early to hit the Albion parade. If we wouldn't have had to meet their mothers, they would not have left! Our only disappointment was forgetting to pick up our art projects
before we left!
