Drivers around Davison, Goodrich and Otisville, MI have certainly had their fair share of road construction this summer.

As if the M-15 and Lapeer Road projects weren't disruptive enough, now another major project will run through mid-November.

Irish Road construction in Davison, MI

Construction gets underway this week on Irish Road from Court Street to Lapeer Road in Davison. This is what Genesee County Road Commission calls a rehabilitation of the roadway.

GCRC Communications Coordinator, Kylie Dontje, tells us what the project includes:

  • parts of the concrete area will be replaced, other portions repaired.
  • sidewalk ramps
  • guardrail
  • lowering of the roadway under I-69 bridges to make it easier for trucks since it's an all-season route.
  • pavement markings

The good news is that it won't be a complete road closure like the M-15 project travelers endured over the summer.

What drivers can expect while Irish Road is under construction:

Parents and staff can still get to Gates Elementary, but it may take a little longer until road construction is completed by mid-November.

The project received $1.7 million in federal funds while GCRC is paying $450,000.

The area around Irish Road and I-69 has grown so much over the last 10-15 years. It's better to get it done now, before more businesses open, and traffic is even heavier.
