Posted on: August 25th, 2015

Washtenaw County Road Commission has opened two compact urban roundabouts on Textile Road in Ypsilanti Township, one at Hitchingham Road and the other at Stony Creek Road. Construction started on Monday, June 22nd and the roads were re-opened to the public on Tuesday, August 25th.

The primary goal of the Textile Road roundabouts project is to alleviate the congestion caused by peak periods of rush hour traffic and nearby East Arbor Charter Academy and Arbor Preparatory High School. The schools provided $500,000 in funding for the project.
