Project Update: Construction Is Resuming

By March 31, 2023Project Updates

Look out Scio Township! Construction is resuming next week on the D-3 Section of the Border-to-Border (B2B) pathway along the Huron River.  

Beginning Monday, April 3, a contractor for the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will return to the non-motorized pathway location to continue earthwork, building retaining walls, and preparing for future culvert construction. Residents can expect to see intermittent lane restrictions near the project limits throughout the 2023 construction season.  

On Monday, April 10, the contractor will close Huron River Drive between Zeeb Road and Wagner Road in Scio Township to perform culvert work. This work is expected to take approximately a week, pending weather and contractor scheduling. 

During the closure, residents and property owners who live within the project limits will have access to their homes. Residents of the Preserves may access Preserve Drive from the west (Zeeb Road), and residents of Loch Alpine may access Greenook Boulevard from the east (Delhi Road). However, no traffic, including pedestrians and bicyclists, will be permitted to cross the culvert locations during removal and replacement.  

For your safety and the safety of workers, please refrain from entering the pathway project limits throughout construction, as it is an active work zone.  

As the project continues, WCRC will send out project updates to inform the public.
