Logo American Red CrossAs part of the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, the American Red Cross is conducting free smoke alarm inspections and installations for residents in Washtenaw, Lenawee and Monroe Counties. The home inspection takes 20 minutes and identifies if there are working alarms properly placed throughout the home. The American Red Cross will provide new smoke alarms at no charge while supplies last.

Logo MDOTThe currently active US-23 construction zone will be transformed into a technologically advanced active traffic management system. This new system will be Michigan's first Flex Route, geared to help eliminate traffic congestion during peak afternoon and evening travel periods.

The Flex Route will include a network of computerized overhead signs, cameras, and electronic message boards attached to overhead gantries that will constantly monitor traffic conditions. However, as with most new technology, an initial learning curve will be necessary before motorists fully grasp how the advance warning system will manage peak rush hour congestion, and promote safer travel.

Because the median shoulders will be used as temporary lanes, it is critical that drivers both understand and follow the rules involved in safely driving a Flex Route. Motorists can familiarize themselves regarding how a Flex Route works.

Road Work AheadThe 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, green infrastructure such as rain gardens, and a roundabout at the Harris Road and Cross Street intersection. 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.

Preliminary work has begun for a reconstruction project on N Harris, however construction won't begin until 2018.
