July 8, 2024 Project Update #9: N. Territorial Rd & Webster Church Rd Safety Improvements (Webster Twp)

Our safety improvement project at the intersection of N. Territorial Rd & Webster Church Rd in Webster Township is nearly complete!

Since the last update, the contractor has been able to complete paving operations throughout the project limits, place aggregate (stone) shoulders, and pavement markings. The intersection was re-opened to traffic on Tuesday, July 2, 2024.

The new traffic signal at the intersection is not yet operational and additional work is still being performed. WCRC crews will finalize the new traffic signal in the coming weeks under lane restrictions. WCRC expects the signal to be fully operational by July 22. Additionally, the contractor will return to the area to finish placing new signs along N. Territorial Rd between Mast Rd and Webster Church Rd. However, this work will be completed under traffic restrictions.

June 5, 2024 Hybrid Informational Session: Renew & Restore County-wide Roads & Non-motorized Millage

Washtenaw County, Wednesday, June 5, 2024 The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) and the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission (WCPARC) invites the public to a hybrid informational session on Monday, June 24, 2024, at 11:30 a.m. to learn more about the renew and restore 0.5 mill four-year county-wide roads and non-motorized millage (Proposal A). WCRC encourages residents to join the conversation either in person or in a Zoom meeting. 

  • Event: Renew & Restore Roads & Non-motorized Millage Informational Session
  • Date:   Monday, June 24, 2024
  • Time:  11:30 a.m.
  • In-person: Washtenaw County Road Commission, 555 North Zeeb Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48103 
  • Zoom Link: https://bit.ly/wcrcprojectmeeting , or by phone: (929) 205-6099, Meeting ID: 879 2332 8754

Washtenaw County voters are being asked on the August 6, 2024, ballot to renew and restore the 0.5 mill four-year county-wide roads and non-motorized millage (Washtenaw County Proposal A). This is not a new tax for voters. If renewed and restored, the 0.5 mill is expected to generate approximately $10.9 million per year for roads and non-motorized pathway projects. WCRC would receive approximately $4.9 million per year for road work in 20 townships, Cities would receive approximately $3.8 million per year, with specific allocations based on the amount raised within cities borders, and WCPARC would receive approximately $2.2 million per year to support the expansion of the county non-motorized path network through the Border-to-Border Trail Project (B2B Trail) and the Connecting Communities Grant Program.  

“Since its inception a decade ago, the county-wide roads and non-motorized millage has consistently delivered on its promise to improve the roadways, bridges, and non-motorized pathways in Washtenaw County,” said Matthew MacDonell, Managing Director of Washtenaw County Road Commission. “Through strategic investments and careful planning, we have witnessed significant progress in addressing the condition of our critical infrastructure.” 

“The Roads and Non-motorized Millage is a testament to the power of collective action and community investment. As we look towards the future, we are confident that our continued partnership with WCRC, Township, and City leaders and residents will enable us to build upon past successes and pave the way for a brighter, more resilient tomorrow,” said Coy Vaughn, Director of Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission. 

More than 70% of county voters approved of the four-year, 0.5 mill roads and non-motorized millages in 2016 and 2020. With widespread support from our residents, the proposed Roads and Non-motorized Millage has consistently demonstrated its effectiveness in addressing the needs of our community. 

The Roads and Non-motorized Millage have been a vital lifeline for our community, providing the necessary resources to improve our road infrastructure and non-motorized pathways, says Chuck Tellas, Supervisor for York Township. Our Township remains committed to working collaboratively with WCRC and WCPARC to ensure that our roads and non-motorized facilities remain safe, accessible, and well-maintained for the future.”

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is announcing plans to invest $6.7 million to improve approximately 20 lane miles of pavement throughout Washtenaw County during the 2024 construction season. Cadillac Asphalt was awarded the contract. The projects are funded through the 2021-2024 Four-year County-wide Roads and Non-Motorized Millage, federal funds and Michigan Transportation Funds (MTF).

“Most of these investments are made possible by Washtenaw County residents who travel on these roads every day. As stewards of these precious dollars, WCRC is committed to ensuring these resources are reinvested into communities, in which it came from,” said Mike Bernbeck, WCRC Project Manager.

Construction will begin mid-April and will end during the fall of 2024, weather pending. Listed below are the project locations with a link to their project web page, funding cost and traffic impacts:
