The existing pavement was pulverized last Tuesday (6/20). This pulverized material will be reused to create a new roadbed. This practice allows us to stretch our limited federal aid resources further since trucking and disposal costs are reduced. Pulverizing the asphalt also reduces the amount of new stone needed to build the entire roadbed for the roundabout.
AT&T worked over the weekend to address some utility conflicts so it will not impose a delay to the Contractor. The Contractor began placing storm pipe on Scio Church Road west of Wagner Road. The game plan for the remainder of week two will be placing storm pipe, hauling in stone material where needed for additional base material, then shape, grade and compact the roadbed in preparation for concrete work.
As a reminder, please remember the job site (intersection) is closed through the end of the project for your safety. This includes after-hours when the contractor goes home for the day. The Washtenaw County Sherriff’s Office is periodically monitoring the intersection both during and after construction hours. Drivers who violate road closed signs and travel through the work zone may have an encounter an officer.
Remember, road closed means road closed. Disrespect road closed, and fines will be imposed. If you have questions, you may write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734-845-2924. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to improve the Scio Church at Wagner intersection.
On Monday, June 19, 2017, the Washtenaw County Road Commission will close the intersection of Scio Church Road and Wagner Road in Lodi/Scio Township to construct a single-lane roundabout.
The intersection will be closed to traffic throughout the course of the project. WCRC expects to complete the project and open the intersection to traffic in early August. However, please be advised that all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
All traffic will be directed to the posted DETOUR route which utilizes Zeeb Rd, Liberty Rd, Scio Ridge Rd, Oak Valley Dr, and Waters Road. A map can be viewed here. Traffic to and from properties internal to the closed section of the intersection will be provided. All others must find an alternative route.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office will be monitoring the intersection and issuing citations as warranted to drivers who violate the road closure. As a reminder, traffic fines per state law are double for road construction violations. Additional points can also be placed on your driving record work zone infractions. Remember: disrespect road closed, fines will be imposed!
