June 13, 2024 Lane Restrictions: Wiard Rd (Ypsilanti Twp)

WHEN: Monday, June 17, 2024

WHERE: Wiard Rd between I-94 and US-12 in Ypsilanti Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: On Monday, June 17, 2024, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance fog seal project on Wiard Rd between I-94 and US-12 in Ypsilanti Township.

The roadwork is expected to take approximately two days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Fog seal is a thin layer of liquid asphalt placed on top of a recent chip seal application that WCRC crews performed earlier this month. Fog seal 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.

Our asphalt resurfacing project on Huron River Dr between Huron Rd and Textile Rd in Ypsilanti Township is nearly complete!

Since the last update, the contractor completed milling the existing surface of the roadway. Paving operations were delayed by one day due to contractor scheduling.

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.”

March 15, 2024 Project Announcement: 2024 Resurfacing Program (County-wide)

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:

Motorists will experience road closures with detours, lane restrictions, and flagging operations. WCRC will maintain access for residents who live or work within the project limits during construction.

WCRC will host a virtual public information meeting regarding the County-wide Resurfacing projects in Spring 2024. WCRC will post project updates online at wcroads.org. Residents can subscribe to road work advisories and project updates here.
