WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will continue preventative maintenance fog seal projects on roads in Bridgewater and Saline Townships. This includes Austin Rd between Schneider Rd 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

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.

WCRC crews began working on Austin Rd earlier this week and they hope to wrap it up by Tuesday, July 13. The work on Jordan Rd, Arkona Rd, Goodrich Rd and Hack Rd is expected to be completed by Thursday, July 15. 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.
