September 15, 2020 Daytime Road Closure: East Shore Drive (Northfield Twp)

WHEN: Starting Wednesday, September 16, 2020

WHERE: East Shore Drive between Main Street and the county line in Northfield Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting Wednesday, September 16, 2020, WCRC will apply a fog seal on East Shore Drive between Main Street and the county line in Northfield Township.

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.

This work is expected to be completed by Thursday, September 17. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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

August 18, 2020 Lane Restrictions: East Shore Drive (Northfield Township)

WHEN: Wednesday, August 19, 2020

WHERE: East Shore Drive between Main Street and the county line in Northfield Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND:     On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will start a chip seal project on East Shore Drive between Main Street and the county line in Northfield Township.

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 road improvements are expected to be completed by the end of the day. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Once the road is 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.
