February 8, 2024 Project Update #1: Fosdick Rd Culvert Replacement (Pittsfield Twp)

Great news Pittsfield Township! The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) plans to perform a culvert replacement on Fosdick Rd at the intersection of Tamarack Dr.  

In December 2023, Fosdick Rd was closed due to a crossroad culvert failure. The road has remained closed due to delays in equipment, materials and permits, as well as unfavorable weather conditions. WCRC is able to perform this project thanks to the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and its partnership with the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office and the Township. 

Next week, you should see our crews performing this culvert replacement on Fosdick Rd. Once the roadwork is complete, the road will be re-opened to traffic. WCRC will send out updates as the project progresses.
