Road ClosureOn Monday, April 2, 2018, the Contractor for the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) will CLOSE Harris Rd between Michigan Ave and Holmes Rd in Ypsilanti Township for the Harris Road Reconstruction Project. The two-lane roadway will be reconstructed including bike lanes, concrete curb, driveways, sidewalk, street lights, rain gardens, storm sewer, and water main.


Update May 8, 2018 - Water main has been installed between Michigan Ave and Forest Ave. The next step is to connect the existing water system to the new main and it will take them at least a week to complete.

If your water service will be impacted, you will be contacted by a representative from OHM Advisors, the YCUA or Bailey Excavating in advance of your water service being connected to the new system. Residents can expect a brief water outage during this changeover and they will be notified in advance of when this outage will take place.

Update June 11, 2018 - As the storm sewer work continues, WCRC will mill away the pavement of the Harris Road and start the earthwork required to build the road base. These are the first steps in the pavement reconstruction process. People who live within the work zone will still have access to their residence but there may be delays as the crews are working.


Update July 12, 2018 - It’s already been a busy July on Harris Road; we’ve completed all the underground utility work and Bailey Excavating, our project contractor, will continue to work on concrete sidewalks, gutters, curbs, and driveways, while also preparing the road for paving.

We are on track to have the road reopened to traffic sometime in mid to late August.


Please be advised that due to weather conditions, all dates are tentative and subject to change. The road will be closed to all through-traffic during construction. This includes the closure of all intersections such as Forest Ave.



Harris Rd: Use Burbank Rd to Cross St to Prospect Rd to Holmes Rd
WB Forest Rd: Use NB Ford Blvd to WB Holmes Rd to SB Prospect Rd
EB Forest Rd: Use NB Prospect to EB Holmes to SB Ford Blvd
