The regularly scheduled board meeting on 4/15, has been changed to 1:30 pm, at the Barry County Road Commission board room.
Check out this link that shows how a pothole is formed.
As the frost leaves the ground with in our gravel road ways they will continue to show soft spots and potholes will continue to form. These issues will more than likely get worse before they get better. There is little to nothing that we can do to repair these issues as they are completely caused by moisture and frost. Please be patience and adjust your speeds accordingly. As the weather continues to improves and temperatures rise these issues will subside. Please let us know if roads become impassable and we will close them to avoid damage to vehicles.
Due to the forecast of warmer weather and the roads already beginning to break up, seasonal weight restrictions will go into effect on 3/10/14 @ 7am. Please contact the Barry County Road Commission at (269) 945-3449 with any questions. Thank you!
Please note the following (2) schedule changes for our upcoming board meetings:
- The Board Meeting on Tuesday, February 18th 2014 has been rescheduled for 2pm that same day.
- Our Board Meeting on March 4th 2014 has been cancelled.
Weight restriction will go into effect on 3/10/14 @ 7am and remain in effect until further notice. Please contact the Barry County Road Commission with any questions.
Please note that Frost Laws will more than likely be in effect a longer period of time this Spring as the frost has obviously been driven deeper this year with the extreme cold.
Our crews will be out until 5-5:30pm this evening and will resume plowing tomorrow morning between 3-4am. Please be patient we are doing our best to get everyone back on the transportation grid safely. Thanks!!!!
Please be patient with our crews out on the road. They are working long hours, we are trying to get to all of the roads today and hopefully a second round on the paved roads. High winds will lead to drifting snow over the road. With the temperatures as low as they are we will not be treating roads with the exception of sharp curves and intersections. Please lower your speeds and be patient. Thank you!
