Paving project to close lanes of Plymouth Road over the weekend

By Amy Biolchini

A resurfacing project on about two miles of Plymouth Road between Dixboro Road and M-153 in Superior Township will cause some traffic delays this weekend.

Though a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction will be open during the repaving, the Washtenaw County Road Commission is advising that drivers seek an alternate route.

Access for businesses and residents will be maintained. Construction work on the roadway began in early July.

The project will add a right westbound lane at Dixboro Road and a center left turn lane with a traffic signal at the intersection of Plymouth Road and Cherry Hill Road.

Paving is slated to begin Friday and continue over the weekend to Tuesday.

It sounds like the goal is easing congestion on Plymouth Road, for traffic that intends to turn onto nearby streets.

Great timing. Wait until a home football game and close this section of road. Why was this not done previously??? How about a Saturday in August, before football season?? This makes no sense. --Jim

JRW from the long back up on Plymouth Road Friday morning from the work my guess is that the weekend work is to reduce the impact on commuters who travel that route during the week. That stretch of road through Dixboro was horrible, so I'm just glad its finally being done. Most fans will able to use M-14 to get around this section easily too, and by the looks of it that project should be wrapping up anytime now.
