WHEN: Starting Wednesday, August 22, 2018
WHERE: 7 Mile Road between East Shore Drive and Pontiac Trail in Northfield and Salem Township
WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal
BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a chip seal project on 7 Mile Road between East Shore Drive and Pontiac Trail in Northfield and Salem Township.
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.
The road improvements are expected to take approximately one day. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
Once the project is completed, drivers are advised to lower their speeds to 35 mph while the stone settles.
CONTACT: If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Kenneth Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
