A permit is required for all work within the right-of-way. As of January 27, 2022, the Isabella County Road Commission uses Oxcart Permit Systems to receive and process permit applications. All transactions must be processed through Oxcart Permit Systems. This includes address requests, oversize trucking, driveways and road accessibility, drainage work, utility work, plan review, commercial site construction and any other work taking place in the right-of-way.
Since the county wide flooding event that occurred April 12, 2014, the steel culvert under Loomis Road between Beal City and Weidman Roads has been compromised. The culvert is in Denver Township and routes the McKay drain under Loomis Road. The damage was severe enough to collapse Loomis Road and called for the road to be barricaded and closed until a replacement culvert could be properly and permanently installed. The replacement culvert will be a concrete box culvert of sufficient size to accommodate a future storm event and has been approved and permitted by the State of Michigan. The new box culvert is scheduled to be installed in the Spring of 2022 to once again open Loomis Road to traffic. Because of the resulting road closure after the flooding, the new construction should not affect ordinary traffic in the area. Please look for updates to the construction scheduling.
