September 9, 2020 Daytime Road Closure: Munger Road (Pittsfield, Ypsilanti Twps)

WHEN: Thursday, September 10, 2020

WHERE: Munger Road between Textile Road and Michigan Avenue on the border of Pittsfield and Ypsilanti Townships

WHY: Preventive maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: On Thursday, September 10, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will apply a fog seal on Munger Road between Textile Road and Michigan Avenue on the border of Pittsfield and Ypsilanti Townships.

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 road will be closed during the day for this work to allow the fog seal to cure. Curing time depends on several factors including weather. This work is expected to be completed by Friday, September 11. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Once the fog seal has been completed, WCRC’s contractor will return to place permanent pavement markings in the coming weeks.

CONTACT: If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696, harrisk@wcroads.org.

WHEN: Starting Monday, August 10, 2020

WHERE: Munger Road between Textile Road and US-12 on the border of Pittsfield and Ypsilanti Townships

WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND: On Monday, August 10, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a chip seal project on Munger Road between Textile Road and US-12 on the border of Pittsfield and Ypsilanti Townships.

The road will not be closed to traffic, but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. WCRC encourages motorists, emergency services and others to use an alternate route.

The road improvements are expected to take two days. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Once the road is back open, 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.
