On Monday, July 13, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will begin a preventative maintenance chip seal project on Dexter-Chelsea Road between Freer Road and Island Lake Road in Lima and Scio Townships.
The road will not be closed to traffic, but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. WCRC encourages motorists, emergency services and others to use an alternate route.
The road improvements are expected to take approximately two days. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.
Once the road is back open, drivers are advised to lower their speeds to 35 mph while the stone settles.
WCRC will return to this area in a few weeks to apply a fog seal on top of the chip seal and place permanent pavement markings.
