Daytime Road Closure: Wiard Rd (Superior & Ypsilanti Twps)

By July 18, 2023Road Advisories

WHEN: Tuesday, July 18, 2023

WHERE: Wiard Rd between Clark Rd and MacArthur Blvd in Superior and Ypsilanti Townships

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance fog seal project on Wiard Rd between Clark Rd and MacArthur Blvd in Superior and Ypsilanti Townships.

The roadwork is expected to take approximately one day to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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 will be conducted under a combination of lane restrictions and daytime road 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, at (734) 327-6696 or via email at harrisk@wcroads.org.
