WHEN: Starting on Wednesday, July 28, 2021

WHERE: Starting on the following roads in Ann Arbor, Northfield, Salem and Superior Townships:

  • Prospect Rd between Clark Rd and Vreeland Rd
  • Dixboro Rd between M-14 and N Territorial Rd

Continuing the following road in Superior Township:

  • Ridge Rd between Mott Rd and county line

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on sections of the following roads in Ann Arbor, Northfield, Salem and Superior Townships: Prospect Rd and Dixboro Rd.

WCRC will also continue preventative maintenance fog seal projects on sections of the following road in Superior Township: Ridge Rd.

Fog seal is another thin layer of liquid asphalt placed on top of a recent chip seal that helps to seal in the chips and further protect the pavement.

The work on these roads is expected to be completed by the end of this week. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

The work will be conducted under a combination of lane restrictions and daytime closures to allow the fog seal to cure. A contractor for WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to place permanent pavement markings.

CONTACT: If you have any questions, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696 or via email at harrisk@wcroads.org.
