With the possibility of a mining operation coming to Lyndon Township, officials in Chelsea have taken steps to regulate heavy truck traffic rumbling through town along M-52.

The city has created an M-52 corridor that requires mining haulers and other big trucks to apply for a special permit to use the road. 

Chelsea special legal counsel Gerald Fisher says the restrictions also apply to over-sized vehicles carrying things like manufactured homes and wind turbine blades.

"That operation will be subject to application, review and approval by the city," Fisher says.

Lyndon Township's Planning Commission will take its time reviewing a proposed sand and gravel mine.  They have tabled for six months McCoig Materials special land use application for the site on M-52 across from Green Lake.  


Many western Washtenaw county residents remain concerned about the proposed sand and gravel mining operation in Lyndon Township.  The planning commission Monday will continue discussions on the special land use request from McCoig Materials for property on M-52 across from Green Lake.

Lyndon Township’s planning commission isn’t expected to make a decision on a special land use permit for a sand and gravel mining operation until this summer.  About 30 people spoke out against the proposal as a public hearing wrapped up Thursday night.

Lyndon Township's Planning Commission tonight continues discussions on a proposed gravel pit and sand mining operation.  About 200 people attended a meeting last month on a special land use request from McCoig Materials for a site on M-52 across from Green Lake.
