August 17, 2021 Zeeb Rd: Rain Delay

Progress was delayed last week at the Zeeb Rd Paving Project in Lodi Township due to the storms we received throughout the county.

We are now working to pave the first layer of the northbound lane today. Our contractors are also working to finish grading the road between Rosemary Ct and Ellsworth Rd to prepare for paving.

February 3, 2021 Project Announcement: Zeeb Rd Phase 2 (Lodi Twp)

The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) is pleased to announce it will be reconstructing Zeeb Road between Pleasant Lake Road and Ellsworth Road in Lodi Township during the 2021 Construction Season. When completed, this one-mile segment of county primary road will be paved.

Why this road or intersection?

In 2019, WCRC completed the Zeeb Road (Phase 1) Reconstruction between Ellsworth Road and Waters Road. After acquiring additional funding, thanks in part to Roads and Non-Motorized Millage renewed by voters in 2020, WCRC will complete Phase 2 this year, providing a paved connection to Pleasant Lake Road.

When will this project be completed?

WCRC hopes to begin Phase 2 road work in May. Road design is underway and permit applications are being prepared. Discussions with adjacent property owners will commence shortly. Some trees near the roadway need to be removed to accommodate proper drainage and modern road design. Considering environmental restrictions, these trees will be felled before March 31, 2021.

During construction Zeeb Road between Pleasant Lake Road and Ellsworth Road will be closed to through traffic and a detour will be posted. The contractor will maintain access within the closure only for residents and property owners who live or own property within the project limits. WCRC hopes to reopen Zeeb Road in late-summer 2021.

How can I get more information?

WCRC will hold a virtual public information meeting on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. In addition, click here to visit WCRC’s Zeeb Road project page to subscribe to project update emails.
