The Saline Township Board passed a resolution which finalized a proposed agreement with the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) for 2021. The agreement was modified in the resolution which will need to be approved by the WCRC.

The proposed agreement between Saline Township and the WCRC includes:

  • Dust Control – two (2) solid applications of contract brine – estimated 111,840 gallons of contract brine @ $0.189/gallon. Cost = $21,137.76
  • Shaping Arkona Road, Macon Road to Goodrich Road – shaping the existing surface, application of limestone with associated dust control. Cost = $46,500
  • Macon Road, Braun Road to Willow Road – shaping the existing surface, application of limestone with associated dust control. Cost = $67,300
  • Township-wide Drainage Improvements – roadside berm removal and ditching on various roads within the township, as determined by the township supervisor. Cost = $16,500
  • Johnson Road, from Marion Road to Macon Road – shaping the existing surface with application of limestone associated with dust control. The Board approved the shaping of the road surface be reduced from four inches to three inches, reducing the cost of the project by $8,500 for a total cost of $27,500.
