Daytime Road Closure: Willow Rd and Others (York, Augusta Twps)

WHEN: Starting on Monday, July 19, 2021

WHERE: The following roads in York and Augusta Townships:

  • Milkey Rd between end of pavement and Saline-Milan Rd
  • Mooreville Rd between Ridge Rd and Dennison Rd
  • Saline-Milan Rd between Stony Creek Rd and City of Saline
  • Willow Rd between Platt Rd and county line

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting today, Monday, July 19, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will continue preventative maintenance fog seal projects on roads in York and Augusta Townships. This includes sections of Milkey Rd, Mooreville Rd, Saline-Milan Rd and Willow 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.

Once these road segments are completed, WCRC will move to sections of Willis Rd, Platt Rd and Moon Rd to apply fog seal.
