MDOT is giving more than a $500,000 to the city of St. Johns to help fix roads.

The money will go toward resurfacing and fixing roads that lead to the new dairy processing facility being built there.

That new facility will take in more than 8 million pounds of milk and produce 800,000 pounds of cheddar and other block cheeses per day.

The facility is expected to open by 2020 and create about 300 jobs.
