County road work wrap-up: Paving begins Monday on several routes

By Amy Biolchini

Several routes throughout Washtenaw County will be under construction as of Monday for paving and resurfacing by the Washtenaw County Road Commission.

In Ypsilanti Township, crews are set to begin paving about two miles of Martz Road Monday.

Traffic on the road will be restricted to one lane under flag control for about four days between Tuttle Hill Road to just west of Rawsonville Road.

Nearby, paving work on Whittaker Road from Bemis Road to about 1,200 feet north of Textile Road in Ypsilanti Township that began Friday will continue.

The work, which has reduced traffic to one lane under control of a flagger, should be complete by the end of the week, weather permitting.

In Scio Township, about one-third of a mile of Park Road from Zeeb Road to the western intersection at Birkdale Drive will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday for construction.

The work is expected to take from four to five weeks. The road will still be open to local traffic for residents, businesses and deliveries, but traffic will be controlled by a flagger and delays are likely.

Monday in Superior Township, the road commission will be slurry sealing a portion of Creekside Drive and Creekside Court. Residents on the roads will have limited access to their homes, as the slurry seal needs time to set.

The road commission is advising residents to park their vehicles on nearby streets like Overbrook Drive or Spring Hill Drive.

OK, so what is the completion date on Stadium Blvd. as it traverses the new (yet to be completed) State Street / Stadium Bridge? Thanks to good weather, that project looks to be going well. A couple days ago, a number of dirt-haul trucks took away the piles of sand and other "over burden" from the site. That still leaves us without a progress report on this particular project. I know this is supposed to be a report "from" our county road commission. But wonder if they or any other source has updated information on this KEY project.
