TitlePolicy
I-75 Overpass RequestPeople on the northern portion of Otsego County have no access but M-32 to get across town. Traffic is a bottle neck, backed up to North Townline Rd. Policy: To construct an overpass on I-75 on Allis Rd or Five Lakes Rd to help allow local people an alternative route to the M-32 access to the city of Gaylord.
Broadband ServiceEncourage Great Lakes Energy to expand fiber optic service into Otsego County.
Proper Shoulder GradesOtsego County Farm Bureau requests the Otsego County Road Commission to create proper shoulder grades on the road right of way from M-32 to Antrim County maintenance line C-42.
I-75 to Milbocker Road RampsIn 2004 Otsego County Farm Bureau encouraged MDOT to consider an alternative route for crossing I-75 in the Gaylord area. Subsequently, a bypass was installed on Milbocker Road which now allows traffic to pass under I-75. However, gridlock still exists on M-32 West, particularly in the summer months. Otsego County Farm Bureau requests that MDOT consider an on-off ramp at the new Milbocker road bypass to further relieve traffic on M-32 in Gaylord.
