WHEN: Starting on Monday, August 15, 2022

WHERE: – Geddes Rd between Dixboro Rd and county line in Ann Arbor and Superior Townships

– Plymouth Rd between M-153 and county line in Superior Township

– Ann Arbor Technology Park in Ann Arbor Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Monday, August 15, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on Geddes Rd between Dixboro Rd and county line in Ann Arbor and Superior Townships, Plymouth Rd between M-153 and county line in Superior Township and Ann Arbor Technology Park in Ann Arbor Township.

The work on these roads is expected to take three days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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 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.
