Storm Damage Update
(posted Sep 09, 2014)

When severe weather affects road conditions, our goal is to provide safe traveling conditions. Since the storm on Friday that knocked down many trees in the Kalamazoo area, the Kalamazoo County Road Commission (KCRC) has been removing fallen trees from the traveled portion of the right-of-way as part of our emergency response. Our crews also need to be aware of sagging or broken wire as it can still be "live" with a deadly amount of electricity. In these cases, KCRC must wait for utility company assistance. When possible, KCRC crews have moved fallen trees outside of the road right-of-way to the adjacent property, clearing the traveled portion of our roads for the safety of the motoring public.  more
