What does fixing Michigan’s infrastructure look like?
For nearly 100 years, the Fisher Companies have been leaders in providing preventative measures and building our state’s infrastructure. The Fisher Companies consist of midland-based Fisher Contracting and eight other companies specializing in heavy-haul transportation, concrete, asphalt, sand/gravel, and more.
After the historic failures of the Edenville and Sanford Dams, which led to floods that swept through mid-Michigan in 2020, Fisher Contracting stepped-up for their community and worked alongside their neighbors to rebuild the infrastructure that was destroyed from the catastrophe. Teams went in to remove debris from the Sanford Dam so homeowners could claim their lost possessions. From then, the team was contracted to help repair the US-10 bridge over Sanford Lake, the M-30 bridges located in Edenville over Wixom Lake, the Curtis Road bridge over the Tittabawassee River, and the Tobacco River Dam Lowering Project.
The company’s and employees’ connection to the Midland community allowed workers to rebuild and support the areas where friends and family work and play. The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) recognized Fisher’s dedication to their community, and contractors continue to complete the dam-related projects and restore the area’s environment.
The Fisher Companies and other infrastructure firms in Michigan are providing the expertise necessary to tackle the impact of community disasters and working tirelessly to fix Michigan’s big infrastructure challenges. With a long-term infrastructure funding plan, we can #FixMIState with the minds and hands of Michiganders.
