The Washtenaw County Road Commission has scheduled the closure of Austin Road between Grass Rd and Schill Rd in Section 4 of Saline Township beginning on Monday, March 2. This closure will facilitate the replacement of the bridges located at Austin Road over the Saline River and Austin Road over the Bauer Drain.
The road closure is expected to last into late August 2015. During the closure period, a signed detour will be in place directing motorists to use Clinton Road and US-12. Access for local traffic on Austin Road will be maintained during the closure, however there will be no through traffic or pedestrians allowed across the bridges.
Please reduce speeds and drive cautiously through the work zone in order to maintain the safety of the construction crews and the traveling public. The Washtenaw County Road Commission thanks you in advance for your patience as these improvements are completed.
