The Shiawassee County Road Commission (SCRC) maintains 486 miles of unpaved roads. Gravel roads require foresight, experience and sufficient funding to maintain.
Each season poses unique challenges for maintenance efforts on unpaved roads. Frozen roads are too hard and cannot be graded. In the spring, roads thaw and become saturated with moisture. Aggressive maintenance during the thawing period can make muddy conditions worse. Due to the weather challenges, most maintenance occurs during the summer and fall.
Maintenance Services SCRC provides:
- Grading, Shaping & Patching
- Dust Control
- Drainage Maintenance & Improvements
