SHIAWASSEE COUNTY – There are several Shiawassee County Road Commission projects within the Tri-County Citizen coverage area for 2017. Below is a brief overview of the projects.

In Hazelton Township, the road commission is re-graveling just over three-quarters of one mile of Allan Road, between Jacobs and Vernon Road. They’re resurfacing approximately 1.1 miles of New Lothrop Road. North Ridge Road will be getting 2.24 miles of gravel, between Geeck and Reed roads.

In New Haven Township, the federally funded State Road (M-20) project is expected to be completed by approximately Aug. 31. In the meantime, the detour continues to be in place between Ditch Road in Saginaw County and Allan Road in Shiawassee County. The road commission website describes the State Road detour route as: Allan Road to Kerby Road; Kerby Road to Ridge Road; Ridge Road to Geeck Road; Geeck Road to Ditch Road; and Ditch Road to State Road.

Other New Haven Township projects include resurfacing just under a mile of Easton Road from Cram to Kerby Road; and a chip and seal project on 2.5 miles of Riley Road, between M-52 and State Rd.

Rush Township will receive delivery on more than 2,600 tons of gravel this summer. According to the Shiawassee Road Commission, Cronk Road will get half of it to re-gravel one-half mile of road between Bandkau and Delaney roads; the other 1,300 tons will be applied on Six Mile Creek Road on the half-mile between Ruess Road and the dead end. Also on the schedule is just under one mile of asphalt paving with gravel shoulders on Smith Road between Epton and Johnstone roads.
