HART — The Oceana County Road Commission has several road projects scheduled for this summer, including repaving Oceana Drive from the north end of the Hart bridge to just beyond Lever Road at a cost of over $530,000.

Federal funds will pay the bulk of the costs, and the road commission will contribute $118,000 toward the project, said OCRC Clerk Sandy Griffin.

Other re-paving projects include:

– Weare Township: Jackson Road from 104th Avenue to 112th Avenue.
