August 26, 2020 Lane Restrictions: Old US-12 (Lima Twp)

WHEN: Starting Thursday, August 27, 2020

WHERE: Old US-12 Road between Freer Road and Jackson Road in Lima Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting Thursday, August 27, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will apply a fog seal on Old US-12 Road between Freer Road and Jackson Road in Lima Township.

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. This work will be conducted under lane restrictions and all vehicles must stay off the fog seal while it cures. Curing time depends on several factors including weather.

This work is expected to be completed by Monday, August 31. 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.

WHERE: Kalmbach Road between I-94 and Cavanaugh Lake Road, Old US-12 between the county line and Kenwood Drive in Sylvan Township AND Old US-12 between Freer Road and Jackson Road in Lima Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND: On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance chip seal project on the following roads in Sylvan and Lima Townships:

  • Old US-12 between the county line and Kenwood Drive in Sylvan Township

The roads 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.
