ISSUE DATE: 02/27/19
Preparation work for the paving of Chubb Road and 5 Mile Road in Salem Township has begun. Trees that are scheduled to be removed within the next month have been marked. If you are a property owner within the project limits, a WCRC staff member will be reaching out to you in the next week to discuss any planned tree removals in the right-of-way in front of your property.
Utility relocations are still scheduled to take place later this spring.
For specific questions on this project, contact Mark McCulloch, project manager, at email@example.com or (734) 327-6679.
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC), in partnership with Salem Township, is excited to announce a reconstruction project planned for the 2019 construction season on 5 Mile Road from Chubb Road to Napier Road and on Chubb Road from 5 Mile Road to Six Mile Road in Salem Township.
What will the improvement look like?
WCRC, in partnership with Salem Township, will pave these sections of unpaved local roads. Once completed, the roads will become county designated routes (All-Season Roads) to better accommodate the commercial trucking that already exists along these corridors. Utilities will be relocated in advance of construction. Tree removal will also be conducted to achieve required grading and roadside drainage.
How is this project being funded?
This is a township-initiated project based on the needs and desires identified by the surrounding community. Both roads are located within the township’s Industrial District and are used daily by heavy industrial trucks. This project is funded by Salem Township and the business owners along the corridors.
When will this project be completed?
To comply with environmental regulations protecting the Indiana Bat and the Northern Long-Eared Bats, tree removal will begin sometime after January and be completed before March 31, 2019. Utility relocation is expected to take place in the spring of 2019 as well.
Construction is expected to take place during the summer of 2019. It is estimated WCRC and its contractor will take four to five months to complete the project. Detour routes will be in effect to construct each roadway.
How can I get more information?
Staff from WCRC will be presenting project details at the January 8, 2019, Salem Township Board of Trustees Meeting at Salem Township Hall. This meeting is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m..
In addition, WCRC will post project updates online at www.wcroads.org and on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
