On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Washtenaw County voters approved a road and non-motorized path millage that will fund approximately 200 miles of road improvements over the course of four years. In addition to road improvements, the millage also provides funding to expand the county’s pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure.
Washtenaw County levied a similar 0.5 mill road tax (using Public Act 283) in 2015 and 2016 which funded approximately 140 miles of road improvements. P.A. 283 funding allowed the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) to rebuild some of the worst roads in the county, such as Scio Church Road, Golfside Road, and North Territorial Road.
