Repairs to Flushing Road have begun



FLINT TWP. — Road repairs scheduled to begin August 3 on Flushing Road, between Warner and Mill Roads, will not be completed until next summer but the road should completely reopen to traffic by October 30, according to a construction progress report from the Michigan Department of Transportation.

The project’s anticipated completion date is Thursday, June 30, 2016.

The Genesee County Road Commission is doing the reconstructing work. Traffic will be maintained via lane shifts.

The work will be done in three stages. Stage one from roughly August 3 through September 12 includes placing traffic control signs and temporary pavement markings, removals, drainage, concrete items, restoration and milling.

Similar work will continue from September 13 through October 19.

Stage 3 is slated to take place between October 20 and 29 and will include placement of permanent signage and pavement markings, guardrails and structures and clean up.

Remaining work, that may include corrective sloping, will be suspended until April 2016 and the project is expected to be completed by the end of June.

No work will be done on Sundays or during the Labor Day or Memorial Day holiday weekends. The work will be done only during daylight hours.

Motorists in the area are advised to allow themselves additional time to reach their destination.
