Voters have approved a $2.7 million flood control project in Michigan, North Dakota.

The project will divert pooling sheet water away from the town.

Nelson County Board Chairman Ben Varnson says 70 percent of landowners voted yes to the project yesterday.

The Michigan Spillway project also would relieve flooding on about 40,000 acres of farm land and rural roads in Nelson County.

Varnson says the board will meet with an attorney to get the project moving.

Construction could start this fall.
