Due to higher-than-expected bids, the paving of Zeeb Road in Lodi Township has been delayed until the 2019 construction season.
Last month, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) received three bids from pre-qualified contractors for the paving of Zeeb Road in Lodi Township. The low bid received was $1,728,000, approximately 18% higher than had been expected.

It’s no secret that MJ Griffin is a special athlete. Griffin, the Hornet senior, was heavily recruited by NCAA Division 1 football programs, finally settling on Temple. Griffin is a 6’1, 180-pound player with great speed and leaping ability. He’s also got great hands and playmaking ability.

But while Saline has talented Division 1 athletes in the past, Griffin is the first Hornet to regularly play defense and offense in the Joe Palka era. 

Last year, he was a defensive star at corner. This year, he’s playing safety and receiver. Griffin embraces his new job.

It’s just a trivial distraction for the Saline senior, who’s enjoying life as his team’s quarterback.
