WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Monday, June 28, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on roads in the following townships: Manchester, Bridgewater, and Saline. This includes Herman Rd between Watkins Rd and Sharon Hollow Rd, Austin Rd between M-52 and the City of Saline, Jordan Rd between Arkona Rd and Braun Rd, Arkona Rd between Goodrich Rd and Jordan Rd, Goodrich Rd between Hack Rd and Arkona Rd and Hack Rd between Britton Hwy and Goodrich Rd.

The work on these roads is expected to be completed by the end of the week. 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 lane restrictions to allow the fog seal to cure. WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to place permanent pavement markings.

CONTACT: If you have any questions, please contact Adam Lape, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6697 or via email at lapea@wcroads.org.
