Managing Director of the Road Commission, Larry Orcutt is asking drivers to stay of the side roads. He said the multitude of cars and trucks that are stuck on those roads are preventing road crews from being able to go down them to clear snow. Those roads won't be able to be cleared until tow trucks are able to remove those vehicles.

Those vehicles have also resulted in numerous plow trucks getting stuck as they have attempted to go around those obstructions.
And as far all roads go, some simply may not get plowed today, and some have already drifted back shut. Orcutt said crews were out till midnight, and others came in way ahead of schedule early this morning (Thursday), and crews will once again work late tonight keeping every available truck on the road.
Orcutt added, "This is one of the more challenging storms we've ever had."

Road Commission Managing Director Larry Orcutt noted the Road Commission was requesting 6 million dollars ($6,000,000.00).

According to the TEDF, the Alpena project was an eligible project, but applications in the amount of 10 point 5 million dollars ($10,500,00.00) exceeded the 2 and a half million ($2,500,000.00) available. Orcutt noting, "There's quite a competition for the dollars and this year we weren't selected."
Orcutt also said since the Road Commission's request has been rejected, they will keep reapplying until there is enough support to move forward with the project.

Road Commission Managing Director Larry Orcutt says a recent billing amounted to around 12 hundred dollars and of that bill, four hundred 50 dollars ($450.00) would have been overhead costs.

Like it does for flashing signals elsewhere on its road system, Orcutt feels the road commission could hire a contractor at much cheaper rates, but is prohibited from doing so for an M-DOT signal. He also notes that the commissions reimbursement for any services provided to M-DOT on their system is capped at 11 and a half (11.50%) percent, regardless of cost, but it is unknown how the state came up with their rates and things could be very subjective.
Orcutt noted that Alpena, with other commissions, is working through the County Road Association of Michigan and lobbying the state legislature in an effort to come up with reasonable overhead rates.

Road Commission Managing Director Larry Orcutt detailed comments of residents at last weeks drainage meeting held at Alpena Township, mainly for the Hobbs Drive area. He explained that beavers and dams were blocking water flow on Mud Lake and a river to Devils Lake.

Since that meeting, he said he talked to Department Of Natural Resources (DNR) staff who quickly responded.
"They did do a fly over, took aerial photos of the beaver dams and have located them. It sounds like most of them are on private property so they also need permission from the property owners to access them, " Orcutt said.
Orcutt noted that it is pretty much impossible to access the dams given their remoteness on private property and due to high water. But once the water goes down, efforts will be made to get permission from property owners to access and tear out the structures. The process may be either physical removal by hand, or using dynamite. In either case, the DNR will have to seek a permit from the Department of Environmental Quality division.
Orcutt noted in the bigger picture, the problem of drainage spans over several jurisdictions and so it all becomes "nobody's problem" which makes it difficult to solve.
