Good morning Saginaw County!

The logs shown here had been washed down the river by the rapid flood and due to the high water, were wedged against the bridge. The logs were then lifted out of the water, cut up, and hauled away.

Good morning!

Did you know that police officers directed traffic by hand before the traffic light was invented? In the early 1900’s, the public was new to driving therefore this job had the potential to become dangerous. There were several ideas that were patented attempting to resolve the issue. One of those ideas was a system using movable arms similar to those used by railroads. As specified by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, it was a police officer by the name of Lester F. Wire, who came up with the idea of using lights instead of hand signals.

Planned projects for Wednesday, May 27 -

** State St bridge is open with one eastbound lane remaining closed to allow for asphalt to cure. **

Good afternoon and happy Friday Saginaw County!

Earlier today both the Freeland and Tittabawassee bridges were opened back up for safe travels. SCRC's crews worked tirelessly this week, putting in long days not only to ensure the safety of our residents, but to get these bridges cleared and repaired for motorists.

We are projecting to have the State St bridge back open next Tuesday or Wednesday provided the weather cooperates and everything goes as planned. But as we all know 2020 has been showing us who's boss.

Also, we need to clear up a piece of information that had been provided in regards to the State St bridge. State St, also known as M-58, runs from I-675 to Midland Rd. From Midland Rd to N Miller Rd, it is State Rd. All roads that have an I, M or US in front of it is an MDOT road, therefore from Midland on it (State Rd) is the responsibility of the Saginaw County Road Commission to maintain. Information regarding the State St bridge which stated it was under the jurisdiction of MDOT was incorrect. We have a newbie here at SCRC and well...… we'll give her a pass this time. ;-)

We hope you stay safe this weekend as you're traveling and while we all relish in being able to be with family and/or friends (10 or less people!) after two long months.
