With today’s improved weather, our contractors began pouring concrete on the Ann Arbor-Saline Road project in Pittsfield Township. Once the concrete has been poured, it takes days to get to full traffic-bearing strength. Vehicles of all kinds must stay out of the work zone. Driving across the newly placed concrete pavement will damage it beyond repair and result in the removal of that concrete, extending the duration of the current closure. Moreover, entering the work zone is hazardous for both motorists and road workers.
We have asked the Pittsfield Township Police Department to help us enforce this closure.
If the weather cooperates and we pour all the concrete this weekend, testing of concrete samples will take place mid-next week to make sure the concrete has cured long enough. Once the concrete has cured to traffic strength, we need to saw/seal the joints and place pavement markings before the road can be reopened.
If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Michele Ford, project manager, (734) 327-6652, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
