Using more salt on slippery roads is not always the cure. In normal winter conditions when the temperature is between 20 and 30 degrees, salt is effective. Salt takes longer to work and roads refreeze faster when the temps are between 10 and 20. When the temperature falls below 10 degrees, ice melts very slowly and roads refreeze even faster. Always use caution when driving in the winter. The Missaukee Road Commission tries its best to clear the roads but sometimes winter conditions and temperatures hamper our efforts. A good thing to remember: “Ice and Snow Means Take It Slow!”
The Missaukee County Road Commission was established in 1928. The Missaukee County Road Commission has a three-member Board of Road Commissioners who are elected by the voters. The Missaukee County Board of Commissioners decides whether road commissioners are appointed or elected. Road Commissioners serve six-year terms. The terms are staggered so that all Commissioners are not up for re-election at the same time.
The county road system consists of both primary and local roads. Primary roads are generally paved roads that function as either minor or major collectors. The local road system consists of all other roads that are under the jurisdiction of the Missaukee County Road Commission. Currently we have 222 miles of Primary Roads and 634 Miles of Local Roads (including seasonal roads). In addition, the Missaukee County Road Commission maintains 132 Lane miles of State Trunkline under contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation.
