WCRC: Information on the 2020 Textile Road & Woodland Drive Roundabout Construction

WCRC
The Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) has announced a roundabout project planned for the 2020 construction season at the intersection of Textile Road and Woodland Drive on the border of Pittsfield Township and the City of Saline.

What will the improvement look like? 
The WCRC will build a roundabout at this intersection. A roundabout is the ideal solution because it can move traffic through an intersection more safely than the current configuration.

Why this intersection?
In 2017, the WCRC applied for a grant to improve the intersection from the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Improvement Program. This intersection was identified based on crash history and concerns expressed by residents. The WCRC was awarded the $455,000 grant in February 2018. The WCRC is working to partner with the City of Saline on this project.

When will this project be completed? 
Construction is expected to take place during the summer of 2020. It is estimated the WCRC and it's contractor will take 3 – 4 months to build the roundabout. During this time, the intersection will be completely closed to traffic and a detour will be posted.

For specific questions on this project, contact Brent Schlack of the WCRC via email at schlackb@wcroads.org or by calling 734.327.6670.
