Grand Blanc Road Construction

The roadway from Dort Highway to Porter Road in Grand Blanc Township has been undergoing a widening project for a few months.

We spoke with Genesee County Road Commission Communication Coordinator, Kylie Dontje, via email. The update is promising for area drivers.

It’s still on track to be completed by the middle of this month [October]. Paving and pavement markings are complete. There are just a few things left to finish up (a couple of driveways).

The heavy lifting of the project is complete. And, thanks to decent weather, it was completed earlier than the Mid-October/Mid-November target.

For the tired, weary and annoyed drivers taking detours that involve roundabouts at Cook Road, the end is finally here.

Fans of Creasey Bicentennial Park will be excited, too. Drivers were ignoring the road closure signs and using the park entrance from Grand Blanc Road as a turnaround, aggressively.

The widened roadway will mean fewer back-ups with the left turn lane in place.
