Dexter-Pinckney Road reopens following tornado clean-up
Dexter-Pinckney Road in Dexter Township is now officially open to motorists.
The road was closed in March by the Washtenaw County Road Commission following destruction to trees during an EF-3 tornado that blew through the area on March 15.

The section of Dexter-Pinckney Road between Island Lake and Wylie roads was closed for storm clean-up and an outside contractor, Harry Fox, with specialized large tree clean-up equipment, was brought in to assist Road Commission crews with the chipping and hauling off of large trees and branches.
According to a release from the Road Commission, the road was re-opened Tuesday.
"Roadside restoration continues and the traveling public should expect intermittent lane closures until further notice," according to information from Jim Harmon, director of operations.
