July 18, 2019 Holding Back the Water

With the help of two large cranes, our contractors are making good progress on the Saline-Milan Road Bridge Replacement Project in York Township. Currently, they are installing a steel cofferdam to help create a dry work area. Once the cofferdam had been completed, the old bridge will be removed.

Reminder: Saline-Milan Road between Judd Road and Willis Road remains closed until the end of September. Residents or property owners who live within the project area will be provided access to their homes but no traffic will be allowed to cross the bridge location until the project has been completed.

If you have questions about the bridge project, please contact Nate Murphy, murphyn@wcroads.org or (734) 327-6647.

November 28, 2018 Project Announcement: Saline-Milan Road Bridge

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.
