April 5, 2019 Project Announcement: Pontiac Trail and 7 Mile Rd

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is excited to announce a project planned for the 2020 construction season at the intersection of Pontiac Trail and 7 Mile Road in Salem Township.

What will the improvement look like? WCRC is planning to build a roundabout at this intersection. A roundabout is the ideal solution because it can move traffic through an intersection more efficiently and with less congestion than a traditional intersection. Roundabouts are also one of the safest options available and they are typically more cost-effective than a traditional signal.

Why this intersection? WCRC monitors numerous intersections across the county for congestion and safety. The Pontiac Trail and 7 Mile Road intersection is one of the most congested county intersections in Washtenaw County and a roundabout is the ideal solution to help alleviate this congestion during peak hours.

When will this project be completed? Construction is expected to occur in 2020. It is estimated WCRC will take 6 – 8 weeks to build the roundabout, weather pending. During this time, the intersection will be completely closed to traffic and a detour will be posted.

How can I get more information? WCRC will hold a public information meeting about this project this summer. WCRC will also post project updates online at wcroads.org and on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
