Road Closure - Austin Road

Post date: July 21st, 2014

Beginning Monday, July 21, 2014, The Washtenaw County Road Commission will close Austin Road at the Eisman Road intersection for one week (weather permitting). The posted detour route will utilize M-52, Pleasant Lake and Schneider Roads.

This closure is occurring to reconstruct the curve at Eisman Road to enhance safety for roadway users.  The configuration of Eisman Road will also change.  The east leg of Eisman will be eliminated as part of this project.  The south leg of Eisman Road will be realigned so that it connects to Austin Road close to a 90 degree angle.
