After 98 years, the Ingham County Road Commission could come to an end soon. Next week, the county board of commissioners is expected to approve a measure that would bring road operations under its purview.

The Ingham County Board of Commissioners will consider a proposal to dismantle the county road commission board.  The county services committee unanimously approved the tentative measure Tuesday night.

County Commissioner Andy Schor sponsors the proposal.  He says the move would bring road operations under the direct authority of the board of commissioners and create a 'Department of Transportation and Roads.'
