Re: E-M:/ Details on MI Transportation funding?

Enviro-Mich message from "Alexander J. Sagady" <ajs@sagady.com>

I note the following in the transportation bill

? Ingham County ? $16.84 million ? Extension of Trowbridge Road to Farm Lane and Farm Lane between Mt. Hope Road and Trowbridge Road with underpasses for CN and CSX railroad crossings 

Seems to me this is Michigan State University "pork"   

If this involves making Farm Lane a 4 lane highway, will this mean 
losses of land from Baker Woodlot and the MSU Fish and Wildlife
habitat area?

Any resident of east lansing would tell you it would be far more important to construct
grade separations/underpasses for the rail road crossings on Harrison Road than 
to construct these underpasses on Farm Lane.
