The Dexter Township Board of Trustees will meet with Washtenaw County Road Commission officials Tuesday, Feb. 19 at about 7:30 p.m. to discuss 2013 road projects as part of its regular Township Board meeting.
The Road Commission offers a local matching program for different types of road and the funding distribution is based on the total number of uncurbed, non-subdivision local road centerline lines for each township. From this pot of money, there is $16,546 available for local road funding and $6,932 available from a drainage matching program.
For this matching program, the Road Commission has a total of $500,000 to spend throughout the county for local roads and $200,000 for drainage projects.
Among the proposed projects up for discussion are:
*Toma Road, Stinchfield Woods Road north to the county line, work on the road surface that would include an application of about 4 inches or 3,050 tons of 22a gravel at an estimated cost of $33,000.
