The road to Hell is going to get a little better this summer.
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports a half-mile of traffic- and weather-beaten Patterson Lake Road leading to the Michigan community about 45 miles west of Detroit will be overhauled this construction season.
Mike Craine, Livingston County Road Commission's managing director, says they'll be "smoothing the road to Hell.''
The cost of the $150,000 project will be shared by the road commission and Putnam Township. Patterson Lake Road is part of a winding roadway extending from Putnam Township through Hell and west into Gregory in southwestern Livingston County.
The road to Hell last got a makeover in 2010. The project is one of a number in the county to repair heavily traversed roads.
