November 16, 2018 Winter Maintenance on Textile Road

The snow has certainly started earlier than we would have liked this fall. Since we were not able to complete all of the Textile Road paving project this year, here’s our plan for winter maintenance:

  • For the next couple of weeks, the responsibility for winter maintenance for Textile Road from State Road to Michigan Avenue (US-12) falls on our contractor, Hoffman Brothers.
  • Once Hoffman Brothers has finished a few items, responsibility of winter maintenance for the completed segments of Textile Road from State Road to Campbell Road; and Textile Road from Platt Road to Michigan Avenue (US-12) will revert back to the Washtenaw County Road Commission’s responsibility.
  • Winter maintenance for the segment of Textile Road from Campbell Road to Platt Road will remain the responsibility of Hoffman Brothers throughout the entire winter season. This segment will be closed to through-traffic all winter.

We know this is an unusual situation and appreciate your patience. If you have any problems with the level of service this winter, please contact Mark McCulloch, project manager, (734) 327-6679 or mccullochm@wcroads.org.

October 30, 2018 Road Closure: Textile Road

WHEN: Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Local traffic to the businesses on Hines Drive and Interfirst Drive must use State Road entrances during this closure.

October 25, 2018 Work Will Carry Over

Unfortunately, the labor stoppage from earlier this Fall has impacted the timeline for the Textile Road reconstruction project and we will not be able to get all the planned work done before Winter. We are working with our contractors to complete as much work as possible before inclement weather stops progress. The goal is to finish Textile Road between State Road and Campbell Road as well as Platt Road to Michigan Avenue this year. The remaining portion between Campbell Road and Platt Road will be worked on in 2019, along with the Textile-Platt Greenway.

In the meantime, our contractors have been able to make some significant progress over the past month. This week, crews were able to complete much of the curb installation along Textile Road from Marton Drive to Campbell Road. Check out the drone photo below to see the progress.

As we get closer to Winter, we will provide additional progress updates. If you have questions, please contact Mark McCulloch, project manager, (734)327-6679 or mccullochm@wcroads.org.

The labor dispute that has halted work on Textile Road for the past three weeks has come to a temporary resolution.

September 4, 2018 Work Stoppage Impacts Textile Road Project

As of 7 a.m. this morning, many projects on county roads in Washtenaw County, including most of the work on Textile Road in Pittsfield Township, 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. Some bridge work may also be impacted, depending on the contractor.

The railroad work on Textile Road west of Marton Road will continue as planned.

Please contact Mark McCulloch, project manager, if you have any questions – mccullochm@wcroads.org or (734) 327-6679.

June 27, 2018 Textile Road Local Traffic Update

Good news! We made the necessary repair between Hines Drive and the Ann Arbor Railroad earlier this afternoon. That section of Textile Road is back open to local traffic (those who live or work within the construction zone). Textile Road from Hines Drive to Michigan Avenue remains closed to all through-traffic.

During the next couple of weeks, as we progress down the road with the storm sewer, we will have more temporary local traffic closures like this one. We will send an email update ahead of these closures whenever possible.

Tomorrow, June 28, 2018, is the next local traffic closure. We will be temporarily closing Textile Road to local traffic between Marton Road and Campbell Road while we work. If you live or work within this area, you will still be able to access or your home or workplace but you will need to use side roads since no traffic can traverse the closure.

Thanks for your patience!

As always, please contact Mark McCulloch, project manager if you have any questions – mccullochm@wcroads.org or (734) 327-6679.

June 26, 2018 Textile Road – Temporary closure to all traffic

We’re one week into our full closure of Textile Road and the project is progressing pretty well, utilities are working on relocating their facilities and our road contractor is working on the storm sewer.

Unfortunately, we have run into an unexpected drainage issue between Hines Drive and the Ann Arbor Railroad that we need to fix. This means that Textile Road will be closed to all traffic, including local traffic, tomorrow, Wednesday, June 27, between Hines Drive and the Ann Arbor Railroad. If you live or work between Hines Drive and the railroad crossing, you will still be able to access or your home or workplace but you will need to use side roads since no traffic can traverse this closure.

We hope to fix this issue sometime tomorrow and reopen this section to local traffic only, as long as the weather cooperates. If it rains tomorrow, we may not be able to make all the repairs until Thursday. We will send you another email update if we have to extend the closure.

As always, please contact Mark McCulloch, project manager if you have any questions – mccullochm@wcroads.org or (734) 327-6679.
