ISSUE DATE: 02/09/2021
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is pleased to announce it will complete safety improvements along Wagner Road between Liberty Road and Huron River Drive in Lodi and Scio Townships during the 2021 Construction Season.
What will the improvement look like?
There are a number of safety improvements planned, including:
- Replacement of two crossroad culverts on Wagner Road south of Liberty Road in Scio Township
- Construction of left-turn lanes on Wagner Road at Waters Road in Lodi Township
- Installation of a flashing beacon at the intersection of Wagner Road and Waters Road
- Installation of a centerline corrugations and new pavement markings along the entire section of Wagner Road
Why this section of road?
After reviewing crash history and traffic patterns along the Wagner Road corridor, WCRC’s traffic and safety section applied for two safety grants through the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Improvement Program. WCRC was awarded these grants in 2020 for 2021 construction. Click here to see all the grants WCRC staff are pursuing.
When will this project be completed?
Construction is expected to begin in early-summer 2021. Some trees near the intersection of Wagner Road and Waters Road need to be removed to accommodate proper drainage and a more modern road design. Due to environmental restrictions, these trees will be felled before March 31, 2021.
WCRC estimates the culvert replacements will take approximately 4 weeks and intersection work will take approximately 8 weeks, weather pending. There will be two different detours for culvert and intersection work that will not overlap and intermittent road closures for other work. WCRC will issue road closure advisories ahead of these planned closures.
How can I get more information?
WCRC will hold a virtual public information meeting on Monday, February 22, 2021, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. In addition, click here to visit WCRC’s project page to subscribe to project update emails.
