Road Sign GraphicThe Wasthenaw County Road Commission is responsible for the repair, maintenance and snow removal of our road system within Ypsilanti Township.

WCRC maintains approximately 1,649 miles of certified roads in the county road system; out of those miles, 770 miles are gravel roads. There are 11 bridges and more than 2,000 culverts. WCRC is also contracted by the Michigan Department of Transportation to maintain approximately 580 miles of State Trunkline. All primary (590 miles) and local (1,059 miles) public roads in Washtenaw County that are outside the cities and villages are maintained by WCRC crews.

The WCRC Board meets the first and third Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm (unless otherwise noted in the schedule). The meetings are held in the board room at the main facility (555 N Zeeb Rd, Ann Arbor). A complete board packet will be posted on the WCRC website by 5:00pm on the Friday before the next scheduled board meeting.

Traffic Management

Residents express concern to the Washtenaw County Road Commission over traffic control issues in residential neighborhoods. Typically, these concerns result in a request for stop signs, speed bumps, road closures, children at play signs or other traffic control measures. Experience has shown that traditional responses and unwarranted signs or signals do not work. Often, the only option available to the Road Commission is to recommend increased law enforcement in the area. With the limited number of law enforcement officers in most communities, this solution is short-term at best and many times unavailable. In order to be more responsive, the Road Commission has developed a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program which creates a partnership between residents, the Road Commission and law enforcement.

The purpose of the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program is to increase the Road Commission's ability to respond to the concerns of residents and provide long-term solutions to residential traffic issues. The Neighborhood Traffic Management Program contains educational and enforcement elements as well as engineering measures. It promotes Road Commission staff working with local residents to find solutions which are appropriate and acceptable to both the Road Commission and the community.
