Responsibility for Roads

While townships in many other states have primary responsibility for local roads, in Michigan the county road commissions and townships share transportation-related responsibilities. Road commissions (and county boards of commissioners where road commission duties have been assumed by the county board) are responsible for maintenance and construction of local roads, while townships are responsible for non-transportation uses of road rights of way, sub-surface rights of way usage such as utilities and communication systems, and law enforcement. In spite of state law assigning maintenance and construction responsibility to road commissions, the state transportation fund doesn’t provide sufficient financial resources for road commissions to perform their responsibilities at a level acceptable to everyone. Consequently, township boards voluntarily contribute over $150 million per year to their county road commissions to support road projects in their respective townships.

Road Work Includes Drains


This spring you may notice some activity that was not on our roads list. It involves the drains along the roads. In order to do a proper job of repairing the roads it is necessary to have proper drainage. As the Road Commission has been preparing to do the work on the Township road improvements they have been assessing the drains. In some cases they are just clearing them in other cases they may be rebuilding or adding drains. If you have questions regarding drain work in your neighborhood you my contact the Township's Highway Commissioner, Don Martin at martindd@ktwp.org or (269) 251-7377.
