On Thursday, August 29, the Washtenaw County Road Commission will begin a road resurfacing project on Campus Parkway between Industrial Drive and Community Drive in Pittsfield Township.

The road will not be closed to traffic, but delays are likely due to lane restrictions. WCRC is coordinating with Saline Community Schools to minimize the impact but there will be some delays to school traffic during this project.

The road improvements are expected to take approximately six days. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

Judith Miles, 77, of Saline, MI, passed away on August 23, 2019. Judy was born October 19, 1941, the second oldest of 6, born and raised in Syracuse, New York.

They married in 1968, and ran off to South Dakota, then Chicago before landing in Michigan, where they raised their family.
