Our contractors are doing some paving work on Mast Road in Webster Township today. The road remains closed to all traffic, we hope to have it back open sometime next week.
Once paving has been completed, contractors will replace the gravel shoulders and install guardrail along the replaced culvert before opening the road.
If you have any questions, please contact Brent Schlack, project manager, (734) 327-6670, email@example.com.
As of 7 a.m. this morning, many projects on county roads in Washtenaw County are on hold due to a labor dispute between the Michigan Infrastructure Transportation Association (MITA) and the Operating Engineer’s Local 324. The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is not a party to these negotiations.
This work stoppage halts all paving, and some earthwork and underground work done by contractors on county roads.
For the Mast Road culvert replacement project, paving will be delayed until this labor dispute has ended. The road cannot be reopened to traffic until the paving has been completed and the guardrail has been installed.
Please contact Brent Schlack, project manager, if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org or (734) 327-6670.
WHEN: Starting Wednesday, August 8, 2018
WHERE: Mast Road between North Territorial Road and Strawberry Lake Road in Webster Township.
WHY: Culvert replacement
BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will close Mast Road, between North Territorial Road and Strawberry Lake Road for a culvert replacement.
The road will be closed to all through traffic. Residents and property owners, who live or work within the work zone will be provided access to their property, but no traffic will be able to cross the culvert location itself.
Earlier this spring, WCRC removed trees along this stretch of road as a part of a federal safety grant, this culvert replacement is the second phase of the grant. No trees will be removed as a part of this phase.
The road improvements are expected to take approximately 4 to 6 weeks. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
DETOUR: The posted detour for this closure is Strawberry Lake Road, Hamburg Road, 8 Mile Road, US-23 and North Territorial Road.
CONTACT: If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Brent Schlack, assistant director of engineering, (734) 327-6670, or via email at email@example.com.

ISSUE DATE: 08/01/18
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) has been awarded Federal Highway Safety Improvement Funds (HSIP) to improve safety along Mast Road from North Territorial Road to Strawberry Lake Road in Webster Township. These funds were awarded specifically to remove trees that are too close to the roadway and pose a safety risk.
The tree work will begin in the coming weeks, with all tree removals done before March 31, 2018. A contractor, approved by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), will conduct the work.
The plan is to remove trees and brush approximately ten-feet from the edge of pavement within the existing public road right-of-way. Additional dead trees may also be removed from within the public road right-of-way.
Please be advised the contractor is not able to accommodate requests for additional work beyond the scope of the contract.
