Workers moving a Robinson Township home out of the path of the M-231 bypass project in Ottawa County.

ROBINSON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- The speed of a vehicle is typically measured in miles per hour, but that's not the case when a two-story house hits the road.

A four-bedroom, two-bathroom house was the latest to be saved from the intended path of the state's M-231 bypass project in Ottawa County.

Crews Wednesday moved the house one-mile from Lincoln Street to 120th Avenue. The move took about three hours.

One neighbor says he is impressed with the man in charge of moving the home.

"I think he is a bit genius to pick up a house and move it," says Art Moffit. "He has done six or eight right out of here off this road that they are putting through."

A family of five from Kent County will be moving in after they build a basement and foundation for the home.
