3-month-long construction project begins on Rawsonville intersection on eastern Washtenaw border

By Amy Biolchini

Construction began Wednesday at the intersection of Rawsonville and Martz roads on the eastern border of Washtenaw County that will affect traffic for the next three months.

The Washtenaw County Road Commission will be installing a traffic signal at the intersection, as well as widening Rawsonville Road at the intersection to add a center left turn lane to Martz Road.

The project on the border of Ypsilanti Township and Wayne County's Van Buren Township has a planned completion date of Aug. 5.

Drivers are advised to avoid the area during construction, as periodic lane closures and shoulder closures will be implemented throughout the project. Officials state traffic delays are likely as a result of the project.

That intersection could have used a center turn lane a couple of decades ago.

A turn signal is sorely needed there.
