History:

Road Commissions in Michigan are created and funded by State Law as independent governmental entities charged with the responsibility of maintaining a road system reasonably safe for the motoring public.

The first meeting of the St. Clair County Board of Road Commissioners was held in Port Huron Michigan on Wednesday, June 18, 1913.

We are directed by a three-member policy-setting board.  One board member is appointed every two years to a six year term by the St. Clair County Board of Commissioners.  The Road Commission Board also serves as the County Board of Public Works. 

The Road commission's largest source of revenue is the Michigan Transportation Fund derived from motor fund taxes, vehicle registration and license fees.  Other major sources of revenue include a contract with the Michigan Department of Transportation to maintain State Highways within the County, contributions from the County's 23 townships, and an annual appropriation from the County Board of Commissioners.

The organization is divided into four districts with the Administration and main garage located at the Central Service Center in St. Clair Township, and three sub-garages located in Capac, Avoca, and Marine City.  The Road Commission & DPW employ approximately 80 people.
