COLDSPRINGS TWP. — Kalkaska County Road Commission officials might have taken the first step to reopening a section of County Road 571 in northern Kalkaska County that has been closed for most of 2020 and early 2021 by seeking bids for engineering and construction services.

The KCRC recently posted a request for proposal for engineering services, which would kickstart the project, with a deadline of Feb. 3.

John Rogers, KCRC manager, said the winning bid would be announced on Feb. 10, with the expectation of a design to solve the issue of a low point in the roadway between Twin Lake Road and Starvation Lake Road being swamped by water submitted to the Michigan Department of Transportation in March or early April.
