Pittsfield Township

Ann Arbor-Saline Rd – October

Ann Arbor-Saline Rd in Pittsfield Township will be closing for concrete repair in October 2019. This will necessitate total road closure in two phases.

Phase 1 will start on October 7th and will be between Lohr Rd and Oak Valley Road and reopened on October 25. The Phase 2 closure started on Monday, October 28 and will be between Lohr Rd and the I-94 ramps. The detour is to use I-94 to State Street.

The goal is to have the road completely open on days of home Michigan football games. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and make for a quick repair and minimal repair times.
