Gravel Road Update

We realize the gravel roads are in tough shape right now. With the freeze, thaw, rain, freeze, snow cycles we have had, it has made up keeping them very difficult. Our gravel piles are frozen solid. Often in the winter we will fill the holes with gravel knowing that it will inevitably blow out but it’s a temporary fix. We can’t even do that right now. As soon as Mother Nature allows us to we will address them with a fury. Please lower your speeds and use caution for the near future. Thanks for your understanding!!!

Motion was made and seconded WHEREAS, Roads are the backbone to the social, cultural and economic stability of Barry County and our region; and

WHEREAS, Senate Bill (SB) 396 (S-5) passed and reported out of the Senate Transportation Committee on September 6, 2018, allows exemptions from seasonal weight restrictions (also known as “frost laws”) to the forest product industry during the spring thaw when roads are the most vulnerable to damage from heavy loads; and

 

WHEREAS, It is a fact in Barry County and throughout all Northern states that all roads become soft in the spring as frost melts, and applying unrestricted 164,000-pound truck loading and traffic on soft roads, whether paved or unpaved, is poor public policy that defies common sense when it comes to road preservation, and will lead to significant damage to the road system, economic damage in Barry County and increased risk to drivers in our region; and

 

WHEREAS, SB 396 also grants exemptions to the forest industry that will allow the hauling of forest products and transport of equipment on the public road system without obtaining proper permits from road authorities at all times of the year; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions of SB 396 will result in costly damage to the public road system which is the opposite of what the Michigan Legislature and the people of Michigan called for in the 2015 Michigan Transportation Package; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions of SB 396 will negatively impact the traveling public accessing the road system, burdening road authorities with expensive reactive maintenance repairs and significantly increased taxpayer costs, as well as increased county and township contributions to maintain the public road system; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions in SB 396 and subsequent impacts to the local road system will negatively impact the health, safety and welfare of Barry County residents and the traveling  public; and

 

WHEREAS, Barry County Board of Road Commissioners work closely with the logging industry to accommodate this valuable contributor to the Michigan economy, while also continuously monitoring road conditions and permitting the logging industry to move equipment and material on roads when the roads can structurally support such loading without negatively impacting the road system and the traveling public;

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Barry County Board of Commissioners hereby strongly opposes SB 396 (S-5).
