WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on sections of the following roads in Scio and Lima Townships: Dexter-Ann Arbor Rd, Baker Rd and Jackson Rd.

WCRC will also continue preventative maintenance fog seal projects on sections of the following roads in Scio and Webster Townships: Joy Rd.

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 on these roads is expected to be completed by the end of this week. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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.
