My Town Rockford: Pothole repairs back up traffic on thoroughfare

ROCKFORD, Mich.--  The traffic headaches on 10 Mile Road and Northland Drive should be over for now.

Jerry Byrne with the Kent County Road Commission says the pavement replacement  work on 10 Mile Tuesday was a one-day project.  The road commission deemed the project necessary since the road had deteriorated significantly due to the harsh winter; pothole patching would not be sufficient.

The eight-hour project led to backups on the thoroughfare, as drivers were forced to make indirect left turns.  However, Byrne says the repairs should last five to seven years.

Byrne says one of the next major projects for the road commission will be replacing approximately three miles of pavement on Byron Center Avenue, between 76th and 84th streets.  That work is expected to begin next week and last two to three days.  Drivers can expect one-lane closures in both directions during the project.
