Hide details for Project Title & DescriptionProject Title & Description

This assistance agreement will vastly improve air quality in southeast Michigan by reducing emissions from in-use diesel engines. This area has the state's highest population density and the worst air quality in the state. This area also contains two non-attainment areas and one of the highest concentrations of diesel engines in Region 5. According to the Asthma Initiative of Michigan, this is the most polluted area in the state, and thus the worst region in Michigan and the nation for asthma sufferers. This project will perform twenty-nine re-powers on non-road construction vehicles through the use of re-power technology. The positive effects of this project will extend beyond the budget and project period and pay dividends for decades to come. First, due to re-power technology, the life-span of these newly improved vehicles will be greatly increased by ten to twenty years. Second, Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) staff members will seize the opportunity to publicize the benefits of the emission upgraded re-powers and their health and economic benefit to the local community in Southeast Michigan. Finally, instances of asthma will improve and will lower school absenteeism as well as preventable hospitalization for children under 18.
