WHEN: Starting on Friday, July 29, 2022

WHERE: – Pleasant Lake Rd between Schneider Rd and Ann Arbor-Saline Rd in Freedom and Lodi Townships

– Parker Rd between Pleasant Lake Rd and Scio Church Rd on the border of Freedom and Lodi Townships

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Friday, July 29, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin preventative maintenance fog seal projects on Pleasant Lake Rd between Schneider Rd and Ann Arbor-Saline Rd in Freedom and Lodi Townships and Parker Rd between Pleasant Lake Rd and Scio Church Rd on the border of Freedom and Lodi Townships.

The work on these roads is expected to take two days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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 work will be conducted under a combination of lane restrictions and daytime closures to allow the fog seal to cure. A contractor for WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to place permanent pavement markings.
