Project Update: Construction Is Starting Soon!

By June 19, 2023Project Updates

During the 2023 construction season, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) plans to resurface Barker Rd, between US-23 and Main St, and Main St, between E Shore Dr and 8 Mile Rd, in Northfield Township. Construction is expected to begin mid-July. During construction, traffic on Barker Rd & Main St will be maintained using lane restrictions and a flagging operation. These restrictions are expected to be in place for approximately two weeks, weather pending.
