By September 13, 2022Road Advisories

WHEN: Starting on Wednesday, September 14, 2022

WHERE: – Dexter Townhall Rd between Island Lake Rd and county line in Dexter Township

– Island Lake Rd between Lima Center Rd and the City of Dexter in Dexter Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on Dexter Townhall Rd between Island Lake Rd and county line in Dexter Township and Island Lake Rd between Lima Center Rd and the City of Dexter in Dexter Township.

 This work was supposed to begin within the past few weeks but was delayed due to crews being pulled to other projects based on equipment availability.

The work on these roads is expected to take three days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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.

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.
