Washtenaw County like most places in Michigan has plenty of roads that need work, particularly after the harsh winter we had this year. The Washtenaw County Commissioners have opted to form a committee to study options for fixing the roads rather than levy a .4 mill tax in December.
The Washtenaw County Road Commission is warning that area roads will continue to be in rough shape for a while, as long as the weather continues to freeze and thaw.
Jim Harmon is the road commission's Director of Operations.
"We're experiencing rough road conditions s county-wide at this time," Harmon said, "both on our paved roads and un-paved roads, and our crews are working each day to try and patch and hold these roads together until things completely thaw out and stabalize."
