Irish Road construction in Davison, MI

Construction started in September on Irish Road from Court Street to Lapeer Road in Davison. Genesee County Road Commission has been conducting a rehabilitation of the roadway.

GCRC Communications Coordinator, Kylie Dontje, told us what the project, which will pick up again in the spring, 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 one side is now complete. The other will be rehabbed in Spring of 2024.

If only their time-lapse video was how quickly construction moved for us.

Next year, drivers can expect Irish Road to be limited in a similar way.

Genesee County Road Commission will maintain two-way traffic during construction.

That's a great thing because the area around Irish & Lapeer Roads has grown so much over the last several years.

There's even more traffic now with the new Hamlin Pub finally open.

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

There was other good news announced that same day -- the Genesee Road bridge in Genesee Township is finally reopened, too.

That project had traffic detoured since the spring.
