The Michigan State Police post in Bay City, built in the 1930s, may be relocating to Williams Township as part of a $5 million project.

State Sen. Jim Barcia,

D-Bay City, announced the possibility Friday at a Bay Area Chamber of Commerce legislative luncheon.

Barcia said the post could become the new Third District headquarters for the State Police, also housing the six-county BAYANET drug task force.

Eventually, the State Police could relocate its crime lab from Bridgeport to the new facility, representing an additional investment of $15 million to

$18 million, Barcia said.

The current post is at 405 N. Euclid Ave. but ''its condition is poor at best,'' Barcia said. Dedicated in 1935, it is ''drastically outmoded,'' and wouldn't even pass current electric codes, he added.

Barcia has requested the $5 million to build a post as part of a capital outlay project in the state's budget.

He said the money could be appropriated as soon as this fall, and leaders in the House and Senate have expressed support.

''It's not an absolute, but it's a top priority for me to get this done,'' Barcia said.

The new post would be built on about 50 acres of land at US-10 and M-47.

The property is owned by Dow Corning Corp., which has its corporate headquarters near the intersection.

The land likely would be donated, said Jarrod Erpelding, a Dow Corning spokesman.

The senator said the

property under consideration is currently vacant, but has access to highways and is centrally located in the Third District.

Williams Township is ''very supportive'' of locating a post there, said Supervisor Tom Paige.

$3.2 million Michigan State Police post set to go to bid by Febuary, according to official | MLive.com

WILLIAMS TWP. — Construction of a $3.2 million Michigan State Police post in Bay County is expected to go out for bid by February, according to Lt. John Card, Bay City post commander.

Work to build the post in Williams Township was slated to start in the summer, but planning of the project has taken longer than anticipated, according to Card.

"There's really no delay," Card said. "It's a process you go through."

The new post is expected to be 12,000 square feet, according to Card, and take up a number of acres on the north side of Salzburg Road, between Flajole Road and M-47.

If construction of the new post is started early next spring, the project is expected to be completed by late summer 2011, Card said.

"We're looking forward to it," Card said. "It'll be a great addition to the tri-county area."

In February, Williams Township spent about $260,000 to extend water and sewer lines to the property to accommodate the new post, serve existing businesses and attract new investment.

The Williams Township location was chosen because it provides easy access to Interstate 75 and US-10 and is centrally located. The post serves Bay and Midland counties.
