WHERE: The following roads in Salem and Superior Townships:

  • Gotfredson Road between Plymouth Road and N. Territorial Road

BACKGROUND: Starting Tuesday, September 15, 2020, WCRC will apply a fog seal on the following roads in Salem and Superior Townships:

  • Gotfredson Road between Plymouth Road and N. Territorial Road
  • 6 Mile Road between Pontiac Trail and Chubb Road

Fog seal is another thin layer of liquid asphalt placed on top of a recent chip seal that helps to seal in the chips and further protect the pavement.

This work will be conducted with a combination of daytime road closures and lane restrictions to allow the fog seal to cure. WCRC will also finish its fog seal work on Pontiac Trail.

This work is expected to be completed by Wednesday, September 16. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

August 12, 2020 Lane Restrictions: 6 Mile Road and 7 Mile Road (Salem Twp)

WHEN: Thursday, August 13, 2020

WHERE: 6 Mile Road between Pontiac Trail and Chubb Road AND 7 Mile Road between Angle Road and Napier Road in Salem Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Thursday, August 13, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin chip seal projects on 6 Mile Road between Pontiac Trail and Chubb Road AND 7 Mile Road between Angle Road and Napier Road in Salem Township.

The roads will not be closed to traffic, but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. WCRC encourages motorists, emergency services and others to use an alternate route.

The road improvements are expected to be completed by Monday, August 17. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Once the roads are back open, drivers are advised to lower their speeds to 35 mph while the stone settles. WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to apply a fog seal on top of the chip seal and place permanent pavement markings.

CONTACT: If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696, harrisk@wcroads.org.
