Several county road projects affected by work stoppage

As of 7 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, some road work in Ottawa County is on hold due to a labor dispute between the Michigan Infrastructure Transportation Association and the Operating Engineer’s Local 324.

The Ottawa County Road Commission is not a party to these negotiations.

The major projects impacted include:

  • James Street -- Resurfacing between U.S. 31 and Chicago Drive in Holland Township.
  • Osborn/Bass/Warner -- Resurfacing between 68th Avenue and 104th Avenue in Allendale and Robinson townships.

Cottonwood Drive reconstruction work in Georgetown Township, between Baldwin and Bauer, will also see a partial shutdown due to the labor dispute. Please note that workers who are not a part of the labor dispute continue to work on the Cottonwood project.
