March 2, 2020 Textile/Woodland: Tree Removals to Begin Soon

This summer, in partnership with the City of Saline, we will build a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Textile Road and Woodland Drive on the border of Pittsfield Township and the city.

The intersection will remain open to traffic during this work but there may be lane restrictions. All tree removal work will be completed by March 31, 2020.

We are still planning to start roundabout construction in June. During the construction of the roundabout, the intersection will be closed to all traffic for approximately 8 weeks.

October 29, 2018 Project Announcement: Textile Road and Woodland Drive Roundabout

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is excited to announce a roundabout project planned for the 2020 construction season at the intersection of Textile Road and Woodland Drive on the border of Pittsfield Township and the City of Saline.

What will the improvement look like? WCRC will build a roundabout at this intersection. A roundabout is the ideal solution because it can move traffic through an intersection more safely than the current configuration.

Why this intersection? In 2017, WCRC applied for a grant to improve the intersection from the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Improvement Program. This intersection was identified based on crash history and concerns expressed by residents. WCRC was awarded the $455,000 grant in February 2018.  WCRC is working to partner with the City of Saline on this project.

When will this project be completed? Construction is expected to take place during the summer of 2020. It is estimated WCRC and its contractor will take 3 – 4 months to build the roundabout. During this time, the intersection will be completely closed to traffic and a detour will be posted.

How can I get more information? WCRC staff will be presenting a project overview at the November 19, 2018 City of Saline Council Working Session at 6 p.m. WCRC will also hold a public information meeting in early 2019.

In addition, WCRC will post project updates online at www.wcroads.org and on its Facebook and Twitter pages. Visit wcroads.org/residents/subscribe-to-road-updates/ to subscribe to project updates via email.

For specific questions on this project, contact Brent Schlack at schlackb@wcroads.org or (734) 327.6670.
