Several Ray Township roads to
receive limestone application
by KELLI KREGERFor the third year in a row, Ray Township will participate in the 90/10 limestone program offered by the Macomb County Department of Roads (MCDR).
Observer Special Writer
Three miles of crushed limestone, made available from the MCDR, will be applied to present gravel roads in the township.
The limestone project will probably begin after the first application of dust control is applied, probably after July 1, said Ray Township Supervisor Charlie Bohm.
He explained that the roads receiving the improvements include 28 Mile Road between Hayes and Romeo Plank roads; Ray Center Road from 27 Mile Road to Indian Trail and Omo Road from 26 Mile Road North to the Coon Creek Bridge. If there is limestone remaining, it will be applied to 30 Mile Road from North Ave. going west.
Traffic counts were looked at to determine the roads next in line for the application; previously stretches of Indian Trail and Wolcott Road received the limestone.
The township is unaware as to the order in which the limestone will be applied.
As in the past, the MCDR will cover 90 percent of the material cost and 100 percent of the labor cost; the township will be responsible to pay for 10 percent of the limestone which is $6,450 per mile.
The total cost to the township to complete the three miles of limestone is approximately $19,350. Two of the miles were already budgeted for this year, with an extra mile of limestone being made available, the township will need to have the budget modified to include the extra mile which was explained by Bohm during the board meeting in April.
Huron-Clinton Metroparks will contribute $3,125 for a 1/2 mile of the project that goes past their offices on Ray Center just north of 27 Mile Road.
