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.

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.

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

A group of citizens came into the Board Meeting to discuss two fatal accidents that happen this year at the intersection of Woodschool Road and Eckert Road.   Jake Welch, Director of Operations, spoke about that intersection.  Under the Michigan Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) the intersection does not meet the warrants for a traffic signal.  Also MMUTCD has put guidance for a 4-way stop and the intersection does not meet this criteria either.

 

Commissioners John Smelker asked where the rumble strip are placed on the road if used.   He also asked if the 3 Pine Trees could be cut/removed for better visibility.

 

David Yoder asked when the last traffic counts were done.

 

Yvonne Yoder asked if “Cross Traffic Does Not Stop” signs could be put up on Eckert Road.

 

Chuck Lindsey read a letter to the Board that he had written in regards to his sister, Laurie Russell.  Ms. Russell died on July 5, 2019 due to one of the accidents.

 

Chris Harrington thought rumble strips and new signs were the best solution.

 

 

 

 

Lani Forbes thanked BCRC and Brad Lamberg for responding immediately to her phone calls.  She would like the Road Commission to look into new pilot programs that would help this intersection.  Mumble strips and LED lights on the stop signs were also suggested.

 

Chris Carlson asked about the timing on getting the signs up and the rumble strips down.

 

The Board thanked all those that attended the meeting and the concerns they shared.

 

Jake Welch explained that double Stop and Stop Ahead signs would be put up by Monday, September 23, 2019, because of waiting on Miss Digg.  The Barry County Road Commission is considering rumble strips, 4-way stop, overhead flasher or LED Stop Signs in addition to the extra signage.    The 3 Pine Trees on Eckert Road are out of the Right of Way but BCRC will speak to the homeowner and see what can be done.  We will be putting “Cross Traffic Does Not Stop” signs on Woodschool Road.

 

A 10 minute recess was taken
