Cattle crossing on North Branch of Clinton River cleared of huge debris jam

Commissioner Marrocco and Barb Matthews of Public Works ponder a huge debris pile located at the site of an old cattle crossing on the North Branch of the Clinton River near Little Road and Cass Avenue in Clinton Township.

100 years ago the concrete abutments supported a bridge across the North Branch of the Clinton River to allow cattle to reach grazing land.

The giant obstruction was cleared by contractor Oceanview Excavation, thanks to a grant obtained by the Public Works Office from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
