May 2: Projects Overview, MAPIs & Touch A Truck!

Good afternoon,  

And just like that its May! Spring has moved swiftly this year with the start of our construction season. This week, crews were able to complete the Joy Rd Unpaved Road Improvements project in Ann Arbor & Northfield Townships, as well as a few culvert replacements on N. Lake Rd in Dexter & Lyndon Townships. Dust control, forestry work and drainage projects continue throughout the county.  

On the engineering side, the new traffic signal at Ellsworth Rd & Oak Valley Dr in Pittsfield Township is now functional. Construction continues on the safety improvement projects located at N. Territorial Rd & Webster Church Rd in Webster Township and Dexter Town Hall Rd & N. Territorial Rd in Dexter Township, as well as the roundabout project at Miller Rd & Zeeb Rd in Scio Township. The Parker Rd resurfacing project will be wrapping up shortly and work will begin soon on the Sharon Hollow Rd resurfacing project. Finally, paving has begun for sections of the Border-to-Border Trail along the Huron River in Scio Township.  

This week, a handful of staff members attended the Midwest Advanced Public Service Insititute (MAPS) Conference in St Joesph. This event provides a unique training experience for supervisors in the public service industry. Participants have the opportunity to learn about organizational culture, managing the media and balancing your career with your overall well-being. Thank you to Aaron Berkholz, Ken Harris and Adam Lape for representing WCRC at this event!  

This Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at Lyndon Township Hall, WCRC will participate in our first Touch-A-Truck event for 2024! These kinds of events are a great opportunity for our organization to connect with our communities. The public can see and meet the human behind the machine. Overall, these events help us improve our relationship with the people we serve and help educate on the important work we do.  

Have a great weekend,
