June 18, 2020 Lane Restrictions: Whitmore Lake Road (Ann Arbor, Northfield Twps)

WHEN: Starting Monday, June 22, 2020

WHERE: Whitmore Lake Road between Barton Drive and North Territorial Road in Ann Arbor and Northfield Townships.

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting Monday, June 22, 2020, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will apply a fog seal on Whitmore Lake Road between Barton Drive and North Territorial Road in Ann Arbor and Northfield Townships.

Fog seal is another thin layer of liquid asphalt placed on top of a recent chip seal that helps to seal in the chips and further protect the pavement.

This work will be conducted under lane restrictions and all vehicles must stay off the fog seal while it cures. Curing time depends on several factors including weather.

Lane restrictions are expected to be in place for one week. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Once the fog seal has been completed, WCRC’s contractor will return to place permanent pavement markings in the coming weeks.

CONTACT:  If you have any questions , please contact Ken Harris, superintendent of maintenance, (734) 327-6696, harrisk@wcroads.org.
