May 5, 2022 Moon Rd: Almost There!

We are making steady progress on the Moon Rd Resurfacing Project in York Township.

Our contractors have finished paving and have been working on placing the new shoulders for the road. The road will be reopened to traffic once the shoulder placement is completed, which we expect to be this weekend (weather pending). We will send out an advisory once the road is officially reopened.

Next week we will have a crew working on drainage improvements, which will be conducted under lane restrictions. While the road will be reopened to traffic, delays are likely due to the lane restrictions. We encourage motorists to use an alternate route.

April 26, 2022 Moon Rd: Paving is on the Horizon

We are making good progress on the Moon Rd Resurfacing Project in York Township.

Our contractors have finished grading the new road base to get it ready for paving. We are hoping to begin paving tomorrow, weather pending.

As a reminder, the road remains closed to all through-traffic during construction and a detour route is posted. Access will be provided to residents who live, work or own property within the work zone. During paving, there may be a slight delay in access for residents as the paving operation moves directly in front of a driveway, so be sure to communicate with crews if needed.

April 20, 2022 Moon Rd: Fresh Pavement Coming Soon!

Despite the snowy weather earlier this week, we are making great progress on the Moon Rd Resurfacing Project in York Township. Our crews were able to finish the crossroad culvert replacements and the forestry work earlier this week. Drainage improvements are still underway.

Our contractors have been pulverizing (or crushing) the existing pavement, which will be recycled and compacted to create the new road base. We are hoping to begin paving early next week, weather pending.

Questions? Contact Mike Bernbeck, project manager, (734) 327-6654, bernbeckm@wcroads.org.

April 7, 2022 Moon Rd: Officially Closed for Construction!

Moon Rd between Saline-Milan Rd and Willis Rd in York Township is now officially closed for construction. The road will be closed for approximately 5 weeks for a resurfacing project. We will start with tree trimming and drainage improvements in preparation for the road resurfacing. This prep work will help to extend the lifespan of the new pavement.

During construction, we will maintain access only for people who live, work or own property within the project limits. All other traffic must follow the posted detour or find an alternate route.
