WHERE: Watkins Road between Cash Road and Herman Road in Manchester Township; Sharon Hollow Road between Austin Road and Sharon Valley Road in Manchester and Sharon Townships AND Pleasant Lake Road between M-52 and Schneider Road in Sharon and Freedom Townships

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting Monday, August 31, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will apply a fog seal on:

  • Watkins Road between Cash Road and Herman Road in Manchester Township
  • Sharon Hollow Road between Austin Road and Sharon Valley Road in Manchester and Sharon Townships
  • Pleasant Lake Road between M-52 and Schneider Road in Sharon and Freedom 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. 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 Tuesday, September 1. 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 Thursday, July 23, 2020

WHERE: Pleasant Lake Road between M-52 and Schneider Road in Sharon and Freedom Townships

WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal

BACKGROUND: On Thursday, July 23, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance chip seal project on Pleasant Lake Road between M-52 and Schneider Road in Sharon and Freedom 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 be completed by Tuesday, July 28. 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.
