WHEN: Starting on Friday, July 30, 2021

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

  • 7 Mile Rd between Pontiac Tr and Angle Rd
  • Angle Rd between 6 Mile Rd and 7 Mile Rd
  • Dixboro Rd between M-14 and N Territorial Rd
  • Pontiac Tr between N Territorial Rd and 8 Mile Rd
  • Whitmore Lake Rd between N Territorial Rd and 6 Mile Rd

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Friday, July 30, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on sections of the following roads in Townships: 8 Mile Rd, 7 Mile Rd, Angle Rd, Dixboro Rd, Pontiac Tr and Whitmore Lake 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 next 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 [email protected].
