February 16, 2024 Project Announcement: Joy Rd Improvements (Ann Arbor, Northfield Twps)

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) plans to improve the unpaved portion of Joy Rd between Whitmore Lake Rd and Earhart Rd in Ann Arbor & Northfield Townships.   

In preparation for the limestone resurfacing project, WCRC crews will begin forestry work and drainage improvements in Spring 2024. The estimated cost of the three-mile project is $600,000, thanks to the Four-Year Roads and Non-Motorized Millage, renewed by Washtenaw County voters in 2020.  

“Local road projects of this magnitude take funding and partnerships,” says Kenneth Harris, WCRC Superintendent of Maintenance. “These long-awaited improvements will have lasting impacts for the traveling public.”  

During the unpaved road improvement project, drivers can expect daytime road closures, lane closures and/or lane restrictions. Completion of the project will be contingent upon the weather. WCRC crews will perform all the road improvements. 

WCRC will alert the public with construction updates on the WCRC website, Facebook, and Twitter pages. Sign up for WCRC project updates: wcroads.org/residents/subscribe-to-road-updates/  

For specific questions regarding this project, please contact Kenneth Harris, Superintendent of Maintenance, at (734) 327-6696, or via email at harrisk@wcroads.org.
