Today in Old Mission Peninsula road news, the Grand Traverse County Road Commission shored up the erosion on the Hogsback, the portion of Center Road just north of the Smokey Hollow Road intersection.

As we reported about a month ago, a section of road at the north end of the Hogsback on the west side of the road had washed out, taking the bank with it. The Road Commission has been working on this section of road for the past couple of weeks and finished up a couple of days ago.

Below are a few photos of the work in progress, along with the finished work.

As a side note, it’s interesting to see actual traffic lights on the Old Mission Peninsula. I’m not sure I’ve seen these before, although I guess it saves having to hire people to hold “Stop” and “Go” signs and wave people through.
