Warming CenterFor residents who are housed but facing challenges with their heating, Washtenaw County OCED has resources to prevent or reverse utility shut offs as well as weatherization and furnace replacements.

The Washtenaw County Office of Community & Economic Development (OCED) and the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County (SAWC) have announced the opening of daytime and overnight winter warming centers for those experiencing homelessness during severe cold weather.

For individuals needing to escape adverse cold conditions (real or wind chill air temperature at 20 degrees or below) before continuing on their destination; temporary weather havens are also available. These sites are for all Washtenaw County residents and will be activated when the weather reaches extreme temperatures, requiring public school closings.

Road Work Ahead Road Sign ImageThe Harris Road improvements will include the reconstruction of the roadway between Michigan Avenue (US-12) and Holmes Road. The new two lane roadway will include bike lanes, concrete curb, driveways, sidewalk, street lights and green infrastructure such as rain gardens to manage storm water runoff. A follow-up public information meeting will take place in the spring of 2018 to provide final construction details such as start dates, projected duration of road closures and detour routes.

Logo Nexus Gas TransmissionAdditional pipeline transportation infrastructure is needed in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada to support the growing demand for clean-burning natural gas and to offset the decline in traditional western Canadian supplies.

To meet this need, Nexus Gas Transmission (NEXUS) proposes to construct an approximately 255-mile interstate natural gas transmission pipeline to deliver 1.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of clean-burning natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline system interconnects in southeastern Michigan.

Snowy Fire HydrantSnow accumulation or the results of plowing and snow clearing can completely cover or restrict access to fire hydrants.

Blocked hydrants mean slower response to extinguishing fires which can result in catastrophic consequences if firefighters have to spend time locating a buried hydrant and/or clear snow away from it, especially if the snow is heavily compacted from snow plowing.
