September 13, 2022 Road Work Advisory: 7 Mile Rd (Northfield Twp)

WHEN: Starting on Wednesday, September 14, 2022

WHERE: 7 Mile Rd between E. Shore Dr and Earhart Rd in Northfield Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance fog seal project on 7 Mile Rd between E. Shore Dr and Earhart Rd in Northfield Township

This work was supposed to begin within the past few weeks but was delayed due to crews being pulled to other projects based on equipment availability.

The work on this road is expected to take three days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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.

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.

CONTACT: If you have any questions, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696 or via email at harrisk@wcroads.org.
