State Local Bridge Grant Program
WHEN: Starting Wednesday, March 27, 2019
WHERE: Saline Milan Road between South Maple Road and Willis Road in the City of Saline and York Township.

BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, Frontier Communications and the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin removing and trimming select trees on Saline Milan Road, between South Maple Road and Willis Road in the City of Saline and York Township.
This work is in preparation for the Saline-Milan Road bridge replacement project that will take place later this year.
The road will not be closed to traffic, but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. WCRC encourages motorists, emergency services and others to use an alternate route. This work is expected to last approximately 2 days. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

ISSUE DATE: 03/26/19
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will be replacing the bridge over the Koch Warner Drain on Saline-Milan Road in York Township near the border with the City of Saline.
What will the improvement look like?
The existing bridge, built in 1957, will be replaced with a new concrete structure. In addition, WCRC will be improving the road approaches leading up to the bridge.
This $855,000 bridge project is being funded with grant money from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) Local Bridge Program and WCRC dollars from the Michigan Transportation Fund.
When will this bridge be constructed? Bridge construction is expected to take place during the summer and fall of 2019. It will take approximately four months to complete the bridge project, weather pending. During this time, the bridge will be completely closed to traffic and signed detours will be posted
How can I get more information? WCRC will hold a public information meeting in 2019 to explain the construction process. WCRC will also post project updates online at www.wcroads.org and on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
