The rain overwhelmed erosion control measures that were already in place between the road and the new bike path. The topsoil that had been placed did not yet have a chance to settle. Michigan Department of Transportation guidelines include inspection of the project after any rainfall. Crews have put in sediment traps along with a silt fence and other measures to repair the minor damage. The road itself was unaffected.
