Short cuts cut off?



Some residents have complained about the Genesee County Road Commission's (GCRC) decision to set up “Local Traffic Only/No Thru Traffic” signage at multiple subdivisions near the Hill/Belsay roundabout construction area. GCRC states this is to discourage motoristc from cutting through the subdivisions and is intended to preserved the safety of residents, as well as to protect road commission assets from further deterioration. They added their actions are in accordance with past practices on similar projects. Residents have complained to police about the signs, and while they have stated the signs are a legal, traffic-control device, their main priority is to make sure people are driving safely, watch their speed and don't drive reckless or tailgate, according to Grand Blanc Township Police Chief Ron Wiles. He said they understand the construction has increased traffic in the subdivisions, but hopes everyone will be patient during the temporary inconvenience.
