Bridgewater Township officials to discuss small road projects Monday night
Three proposed local road projects will be part of a discussion Monday night between Bridgewater Township officials and representatives from the Washtenaw County Road Commission.
Last year, the township used all of its possible local road and drainage matching fund amounts, which were $11,897 for conventional local roads and $11,481 for drainage projects.

In 2011, the township spent about $31,700 for local road dust control, while the Road Commission spent about $360,500 on primary roads in the township, including the overlay of Austin and Clinton roads, to 1,000 feet east of Ernst Road and the crack sealing on Austin Road west of Schneider Road.
On tap for discussion are:
- Township-wide limestone for various local roads at an estimated cost of $12.48 per ton. The township would be able to set a “not to exceed” amount for the work.
- Township-wide gravel for various roads at a cost of $10.39 per ton. Again, officials can set a “not to exceed” cost
- Township-wide ditching work. This would take place throughout the township and officials can set a “not to exceed” cost for the road work.
There are 38.68 miles of certified local gravel roads in the township, and one solid application of dust control costs about $14,600.
Bridgewater Township officials will meet with the Washtenaw County Road Commission Monday at 7 p.m. at Township Hall.
