In 2014, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners used Public Act 283 (P.A. 283) to levy a one-year, 0.5-mill property tax to help address the county’s failing road system at the local level. These funds allowed the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) to improve an additional 75 miles of county roads during the 2015 construction season. WCRC used the funds to pulverize and resurface some of the worst pavement conditions in the county, including sections of Scio Church Rd, North Territorial Rd, Superior Rd, and Golfside Rd.
Following a successful 2015 construction season, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners approved a second year of the P.A. 283 millage. The millage funded improvements on 58 miles of roadway during the 2016 construction season.
