7/18/18 ROAD PROJECT UPDATE:  

As of Wednesday afternoon, all pulverising and shaping should be complete on all project roads. Starting Thursday morning we will be applying dust control measures to gravel surfaces in housing areas in an attempt to keep the complaint numbers at a lower level until asphalt can be applied.

Paving will start on July 24 on Airport Circle and will be working toward the Kivela, North Road, and South Basin areas. We will apply the first layer to all roads, again to keep the complaints down, then go back and put the final layer on the same roads.

Please give yourself adequate time for your trips. Crews will be working well beyond normal hours in an attempt to get this project completed. Please give them a brake!

CO. RD. 510 PROJECT UPDATE

As this project closes out it may be a good time to go over a couple of things that have been in question lately.

 1. The final width of the road from Midway Drive to Hardwood Lane is now 30 feet, considerably wider than the surface replaced. As designed the road was supposed to have an 11 foot traffic lane and a 4 foot pedestrian lane separated by a white " fog stripe" on each side. Unfortunately, the striping crew got it wrong and the pedestrian lanes are 1 foot too narrow. This will be corrected in the next striping cycle.

 2. As expected, speeds of some vehicles have increased, causing an unsafe conditions.  We are working with the Mqt County Sheriff on aggressive methods of speed control. If you haven't noticed these yet, you will in the very near future.  While we cannot change the speed limit we can enforce the one that we have.  

3. We will be working with the Mqt County Road Commission this fall on the concept of extending CR 510 from where it now intersects Midway Drive through to U.S.41 in the area of Charter. This concept would likely remove most of the through traffic for CR510 from Midway Drive and would provide an opportunity to prvide a safer intersection for traffic flowing East. Should this road come to be, the East end of Midway Dive would likely be closed off from U.S.41 with a culdesac, which would calm that area down considerably. The design of the intersection of CR510 and Midway Drive has been created to allow proper alignment of the intersection should this whole idea fall into place.

 If you should have questions, please contact the township office so that they can be answered promptly. Also please drive carefully, watch your speed, and enjoy the new road!
