WHEN: Starting Monday, July 27, 2020
WHERE: Watkins Road between Cash Road and Herman Road AND Sharon Hollow Road between Austin Road Sharon Valley Road in Manchester and Sharon Townships
WHY: Preventative maintenance – chip seal
BACKGROUND: On Monday, July 27, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance chip seal project on Watkins Road between Cash Road and Herman Road AND Sharon Hollow Road between Austin Road Sharon Valley Road in Manchester and Sharon Townships.
The roads 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.
CONTACT: If you have any questions concerning this work, please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696, firstname.lastname@example.org.
