Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s construction open house meeting. As we mentioned, the intersection improvement project on Ridge Road and Hack Road in York Township is expected to begin on Thursday, August 29, 2019. Our goal is to complete the project by the end of October.

During construction, the intersection will be closed to all through-traffic. Residents and property owners who live within the work zone will be provided access to their homes but no traffic will be able to cross the intersection. We will send out another email advisory ahead of the closure.

October 29, 2018 Project Announcement: Ridge Road and Hack Road Intersection Improvements

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is excited to announce intersection and curve improvements at the intersection of Ridge Road and Hack Road in York Township.

What will the improvement look like? WCRC, in partnership with the Monroe County Road Commission (MCRC), is planning the following improvements to the intersection of Ridge Road and Hack Road and the curve on Ridge Road:

  • Realign intersections of Ridge Road and Hack Road and at Westfall Road
  • Wedging of the curve and installing of a high friction surface
  • Installing centerline and shoulder rumble strips on the curve
  • Paving shoulders along the curve
  • Paving the gravel road approaches

Why this intersection? In 2017, WCRC applied for a grant to improve the intersection from the Michigan Department of Transportation’s High Risk Rural Roadways Program.  This intersection was identified based on crash history and concerns expressed by residents. WCRC was awarded the $330,000 grant in February 2018.

When will this project be completed? Construction is expected to take place during the summer of 2019. It will take approximately two months to complete the project. During this time, the intersection will be completely closed to traffic and a detour will be posted.

How can I get more information? WCRC and MCRC will hold a public information meeting in early 2019. WCRC will also post project updates online at www.wcroads.org and on its Facebook and Twitter pages. Subscribe to project and road work advisories: wcroads.org/residents/subscribe-to-road-updates/
