WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance chip seal projects on 6 Mile Rd between Whitmore Lake Rd and US-23 in Northfield Township, Main St between 6 Mile Rd and East Shore Dr in Northfield Township and 8 Mile Rd between county line and US-23 in Northfield Township. We will also continue work on Dixboro Rd and Whitmore Lake Rd.

The work on this road is expected to be completed by the end of the week. 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.
