October 10, 2022 Lane Closure Advisory: Huron River Dr

WHEN: Starting Wednesday, October 12, 2022

WHERE: Huron River Dr between Zeeb Rd and Delhi Rd in Scio Township

WHY: Border-to-Border Trail

BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, October 12, 2022, a contractor for the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will close one lane on Huron River Dr between Zeeb Rd and Delhi Rd in Scio Township as a part of Segment D3 construction on the Border-to-Border pathway project.

The road 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 lane closure is expected to last approximately 3 days. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

September 27, 2022 B2B Pathway D3: Construction Starting Soon (We Really Mean It)!

We’re planning to start construction next week on section D3 of the Border-to-Border (B2B) pathway along the Huron River in Scio Township. We have all the necessary permits and our contractor is ready to go.

To get started, our contractor will build a temporary construction driveway on Huron River Dr,  west of Delhi MetroPark. They will also prepare the work site for earthwork. Nearly all of this early earthwork will take place well away from the road and won’t impact traffic.

Due to the complexity of this construction, the pathway is expected to take more than a year to complete. When completed, this segment will run from the intersection of Zeeb Rd and Huron River Dr to Delhi Metropark.

June 8, 2022 B2B Pathway D3: Construction Starting Soon!

Good news…construction is expected to begin soon on section D3 of the Border-to-Border (B2B) pathway along the Huron River in Scio Township. After months of working through a complex design and permitting process, our contractor is expected to begin earthwork in the coming weeks.

This trail project begins at the intersection of Zeeb Rd and Huron River Dr and ends in Delhi Metropark (1.1 miles), joining two previously completed sections of B2B Trail. The trail is on the south side of Huron River Dr and within the road and railroad rights-of-way before crossing the Huron River and entering Delhi Metropark. The trail work includes grading, paving of an asphalt trail, construction of retaining walls, installation of a pedestrian bridge over the Huron River, turf restoration and plantings, and other related improvements.

Initially, there will not be any significant impact to motorists, most of the pathway construction will take place away from the road. However, later this year, there will be brief closures on Zeeb Rd near Huron River Dr and Huron River Dr between Preserve Dr and Greenook Dr as we install two crossroad culverts. We will post an advisory in advance of these closures.

Due to the complexity of this construction, the pathway is expected to take more than a year to complete.
