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.
