Consumers Energy says warmer weather will allow it to resume construction of the 105 MW Cross Winds Energy Park, located in Tuscola County, Mich.

The wind farm will include 62 wind turbines, with a capacity of 105 MW when it begins operating later this year. Wind turbine components are scheduled to arrive at the Cross Winds site by mid-summer.

Following agreements with the Tuscola County Road Commission, the project includes necessary maintenance, repair and upgrades to several area roads needed for transporting wind turbine components and other construction-related materials.

Southfield, Mich.-based Barton Malow, the wind farm’s lead contractor, will focus on construction of access drives, turbine foundations and electrical systems this spring.

Akron and Columbia Township residents are receiving a "safety alert" postcard from Consumers Energy. The company urges motorists to be alert for construction traffic in these townships and throughout Tuscola County since many construction materials are coming from suppliers located in Michigan's Thumb, southeastern Michigan and other parts of the state.
