SPECIAL INFORMATION


  • THE COUNTY ROAD ASSOCIATION OF MICHIGAN-PRESS RELEASE, AUGUST 26, 2014
Salt Prices Soar – Another Hit to Cash-Strapped Road Agencies
Lansing, Mich. – While Michigan residents are enjoying the dog days of summer, road agencies are 
quietly
preparing for winter. The County Road Association said that state and local road agencies are 
bracing for a massive increase in salt prices expected this year – yet another hit for 
cash-strapped road maintenance
budgets.
“The harsh winter last year caused many road agencies, and other public entities that cooperatively
purchase salt from them – such as school districts and other governmental agencies – to deplete 
their salt reserves,” said Denise Donohue, director of the County Road Association. “As the demand 
for early salt
delivery increased this year, so did the price.”

  • MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S REALITY CHECK

 

There are many common myths and misconceptions about transportation in Michigan, from why MDOT replaces "perfectly good" signs to why current funding levels aren't enough to keep roads and bridges in good condition. Please click Transportation Reality Check for all of MDOT's myths and realities.



  • MICHIGAN LOCAL ROADS MATTER

Michigan Local Roads Matter  is a diverse coalition of groups from across Michigan joined in recognition that local road and bridge network is critical to business and economic development, to schools, to emergency response times and public safety, to seniors, to healthcare, to families, to agriculture, to tourism, to revitalization, to the economy, to every Michigan resident.

Summary: Deficient roadways cost Detroit area drivers $1,600 annually, Lansing area drivers $1,032 annually, and Grand Rapids area drivers $1,027 annually for a total of $7.7 billion statewide.  Costs will rise and transportation woes will worsen without a significant funding boost.

STREAMLINING THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS IN MONROE COUNTY

DEVELOPERS STREAMLINING GUIDE

To better serve the development community the Monroe County Economic Development Corporation has facilitated the creation of a guide that will “streamline the development processes” within Monroe County thus saving precious time, money and effort in getting projects up and running in the shortest possible time in our communities.

 
 
This Streamlining Guide is a partnership between all the county agencies (including the Monroe County Road Commission), authorities, municipalities and others that may become involved with the planning, permitting, construction and assistance in project developments here in Monroe County.

A recent development which was an outgrowth of the original publication of this document is the adoption of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Monroe County Road Commission and the Monroe County Drain Commission. This agreement was specifically designed to streamline and speed up the review of development proposals by these agencies.
