Road will be closed during construction
Federal, Michigan Transportation Fund (MTF)
During the 2024 construction season, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) plans to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Miller Rd and Zeeb Rd in Scio Township. The intersection will be closed to all traffic during construction and a detour will be posted.
Thank you to those who were able to attend our virtual public design information meeting on Thursday, July 13, 2023. If you weren’t able to join us, click here to watch the meeting recording or check out the slide show. WCRC plans to hold a construction information meeting closer to the start of construction. WCRC will continue to send out updates as the project progresses.

ISSUE DATE: 06/14/23
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) received a federal safety grant through the Highway Safety Improvement Program from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) in the fall of 2022, for a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Miller Road and Zeeb Road in Scio Township.
WCRC routinely monitors county intersections and crash data. Based on traffic and safety studies at Miller Rd and Zeeb Rd, WCRC has determined the intersection is a candidate for this safety improvement. This intersection has a history of serious crashes and research shows that roundabouts reduce the number of severe injury or “T-bone” crashes. The installation of a roundabout at this location will improve safety and reduce the number of dangerous conflict points while maintaining traffic through the intersection.
WCRC is still in the preliminary engineering phase for the roundabout and will have a public information meeting during the design phase. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2024. While the design is ongoing, it is expected, the Miller Rd at Zeeb Rd roundabout project will look similar to the Liberty Rd at Zeeb Rd roundabout. We expect the total cost of the project to be an estimated $1.5 million.
WCRC will continue to update the project as information becomes available, and residents can click here to sign up for project updates. If you have specific questions, contact Michele Ford, project manager, at (734) 327-6652, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
