7/16/18 ROAD PROJECT UPDATE:  

We will be applying road gravel and crushing/shaping on Kivela, North Road, South Basin up to the "totem pole", and North Road Extension (JA). This has been delayed from last week due to a mechanical malfunction with the needed machinery. As soon as the crushing is completed in the housing areas ( probably Wednesday), we will be applying a dust suppression material to the road which should help in keeping the dust down. 

Paving is now planned to begin on July 23 and as soon as the contractor gives us the schedule for that we will pass it along.
 
Until the surface is installed speed is the only way to control the dust. Please be considerate of residents when driving through these construction areas. There will be added enforcement of laws where necessary to protect worker safety. Give 'em a brake and maybe save yourself some money!

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!
