Jake Welch, Director of Operations, gave the Board updates on the following roads that have water over them:

 

3-Mile Road – Water is 6” high and has been high most of this summer and landowners have been contacting BCRC.  SME, Inc. has done soil borings on the road.  It has been decided to put approximately 1’ – 1.5’ of 21AA along with various geotextile fabrics and grids on the road.  This should allow the road to be open for the winter.  Next summer if the gravel has held up and the water continues to be not over the road we will put a Prime and Triple Seal on the road.

 

Upton Road – Meetings this week on this road.  Looking into maybe doing an asphalt lift this week.

 

Charlton Park Road – The Road has been under water off and on all year.  It is currently 5 ½’ higher on the east side than the west side.  We have received many phone calls and e-mails on land and trees that are under water.  We have met with the Inter-County Drain Board, Drain Commissioner Jim Dull, and the DEQ to discuss options for this road.  Next year a bridge is scheduled to be put in using Federal funds.  We met with Milbocker & Sons, Inc. and they are going to put up sheeting to channel the water around the culverts allowing for a slow drawdown.   The culverts can then be cleaned out and hopefully return to normal flow.

 

Garbow Road will get an overlay soon to prevent icing and accidents this winter due to water on the road.
