WHEN: Starting on Friday, May 20, 2022
WHERE: – Bemis Rd between Platt Rd and Carpenter Rd on the border of Pittsfield and York Townships
– Platt Rd between Judd Rd and Willis Rd in York Township
WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal
BACKGROUND: Starting on Friday, May 20, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance chip seal project on the following roads:
Daytime road closures: Platt Rd between Judd Rd and Willis Rd in York Township. Access will be provided to emergency services, school buses and residents who live, work or own property within the work zone. The roads will reopen at the end of each day and remain open until work resumes the following morning.
Lane restrictions: Bemis Rd between Platt Rd and Carpenter Rd on the border of Pittsfield and York Townships. Bemis Rd will not be closed but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route.
The work on these roads is expected to be completed within approximately one day. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
Once the work is completed, 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, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
