Mattawan House Moving Has Been Rescheduled For February 21st
A house that was scheduled to be moved last month from Mattawan to Paw Paw has been rescheduled for February 21st. According to Van Buren County 911's Facebook page: "Thursday February 21st a house is scheduled to be moved from Mattawan to Paw Paw. The move will start on Main St just south of I-94 in Mattawan at approximately 10:00 am.
The planned route will head north on Main Street over the highway, turn left onto Red Arrow Hwy, go through downtown Paw Paw and then make a right on Hazen St. The destination is on Hazen St near Lake St. This will be a slow process that may involve temporarily moving overhead wires. It is unknown exactly when the house will be in downtown Paw Paw. The house will take up both lanes of the roadway. Law Enforcement will be assisting with traffic congestion. To avoid the inevitable traffic congestion, plan an alternate route. We will pass along any updates as they come to us."
