Road ditching is an essential component of road maintenance that serves a primary purpose, and that purpose is to aid in the preservation of our roads. As many of us know, water can be quite troublesome when left stagnant on the roadways, as it slowly causes them to deteriorate over time. This is where road ditching comes in, and it plays a critical role by enabling water to be drained efficiently away from the road, thus preventing it from causing any potential damage. In other words, road ditching helps to keep the road safe and drivable at all times. So, if you’re wondering why road ditching is so important, simply remember that it helps to keep the roadways in good condition, enhances their longevity, and ensures our safety while traveling on them.

Steps in the Ditching Process

Submit a Ditching Request

In Michigan, townships are unable to perform maintenance on roadways and ditches due to legal restrictions. This important work is completed by the St Clair County Road Commission. However, before any ditching work can be initiated, it, unfortunately, must start with the township. This is because the township is responsible for funding the execution of the ditching project. To streamline this process, we have created a simple form that you can complete to start your ditching request. With just a few clicks, you can provide all the necessary details to get your request underway. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of this valuable service. So why wait? Fill out the form today and let us help you get your ditching project started!
