Local Road Resurfacing
News, Transportation

From: Ottawa County Road Commission

The Road Commission and Townships develop the annual local road resurfacing program based on available funds, road conditions, and public input.
 
Historically, the Road Commission has funded improvements to section line local roads and the Townships have funded improvements to subdivision streets.

Each Township's process for picking subdivision streets is different. However, the Road Commission provides

Township and the 1.2 mile section of Dogwood Drive from the city limit of Ferrysburg north to Hickory Street in Spring Lake Township.road condition data, pavement age, and cost estimates to assist the Townships in the selection process. Typically, streets are considered for resurfacing once the pavement surface age reaches between 15 to 20 years.

Bids for this years program have been received and the projects are as follows:

The Road Commission will be resurfacing the 1 mile section of James Street from 168th Avenue to 160th Avenue in Park Township and the 1.2 mile section of Dogwood Drive from the city limit of Ferrysburg north to Hickory Street in Spring Lake Township. Both projects are anticipated to be resurfaced in August.

Georgetown, Grand Haven, Holland, Park, and Zeeland Townships have a program that includes almost 14 miles of subdivision streets. The contractor has started in Georgetown Township and is planning on moving to the other Townships and completing the work by the end of September.
