August 4, 2022 Road Work Advisory: Whittaker Rd (Augusta Twp)

WHEN: Starting on Monday, August 8, 2022

WHERE: – Whittaker Rd between Arkona Rd and Willow Rd in Augusta Township

WHY: Preventative maintenance – fog seal

BACKGROUND: Starting on Monday, August 8, 2022, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance fog seal project on Whittaker Rd between Arkona Rd and Willow Rd in Augusta Township.

The work on this road is expected to take two days to complete. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

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.

The work will be conducted under a combination of lane restrictions and daytime closures to allow the fog seal to cure. A contractor for WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to place permanent pavement markings.

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