ISSUE DATE: 04/20/23
WHEN: On Wednesday, February 15, 2023
WHERE: Parker Rd between Bent Tree Dr and Dexter-Chelsea Rd in Lima and Scio Townships
WHY: Utility work: DTE Gas
BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, February 15, 2023, a contractor for DTE gas will close the northbound lane of Parker Rd between Bent Tree Dr and Dexter-Chelsea Rd in Lima and Scio Townships during daytime hours to conduct utility work related to the 2023 Parker Rd Culvert Project.
Traffic on Parker Rd will be maintained with a flagging operation during daytime hours. The northbound lane of Parker Rd will reopen at the end of each day and remain open until work resumes the following morning. 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 work is expected to take 6 weeks. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

ISSUE DATE: 02/13/23
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) intends to replace a culvert on Parker Rd between Bent Tree Dr and Dexter-Chelsea Rd in Lima and Scio Townships during the 2023 construction season.
In preparation for this work, this winter a WCRC contractor will remove approximately 24 trees of various sizes within the project area. These trees are being removed to allow sufficient space for the safe and efficient installation of the new culvert and related road improvements. The contractor plans to have all tree removals completed by March 31, 2023.
The culvert replacement is expected to begin in the summer, sometime after July 1st. Based on the scope of the work involved, WCRC estimates it will take approximately seven weeks to complete the project, weather pending.
Once construction begins this summer, the road will be closed to ALL through traffic and a detour will be posted. WCRC will maintain access only for residents who live or work within the project limits during construction. However, NO traffic will be able to cross the culvert location.
WCRC will host a virtual project information meeting prior to construction to provide additional information to residents.
