On Monday, August 14, 2017, a contractor for DTE Gas will CLOSE Geddes Road between LeForge Road and Prospect Road in Superior Township in order to complete the gas relocation work in preparation for the Geddes Road improvement project. Once the DTE relocation is complete, the Washtenaw County Road Commission’s contractor will complete the remaining portion of the Geddes Road project. The road will be closed to all traffic during construction.
Remaining work on Geddes Road includes replacing a concrete culvert on Geddes Road just east of LeForge Road. This work is scheduled to begin Monday August 21, 2017. WCRC expects the work to be complete in early October 2017. However, please be advised that due to weather conditions, all dates are tentative and subject to change.
The contractor for the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will temporarily reopen Geddes Road between LeForge Road and Prospect Road on Wednesday, July 5 at approximately 5 pm after completing road resurfacing work.
Please be advised that this segment of Geddes Road will close again later this summer for the installation of a concrete box culvert. WCRC will issue a media advisory prior to the closure of Geddes Road. WCRC expects work to resume in mid-August, but all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
The scheduled concrete box culvert installation located just east of LeForge Road was delayed because DTE Gas failed to relocate an existing 24” gas main on the south side that is in conflict. Once DTE Gas has completed its work, WCRC’s Contractor will close Geddes Road again to complete the concrete box culvert installation.
On Monday, June 26, 2017, a Contractor for the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will CLOSE Geddes Road between LeForge Road and Prospect Road in Superior Township for the Geddes Road Improvements project.

The road will be closed to all traffic during construction. The WCRC expects the work to be complete in September 2017. However, please be advised that due to weather conditions, all dates are tentative and subject to change.
The posted DETOUR for this closure is LeForge Road, Clark Road, and Prospect Road. Local traffic to and from adjacent properties located within the closed section of Geddes Road will be maintained. WCRC thanks you in advance for your patience during this gas main relocation project.
