Construction Announcement from Wayne County for Van Horn Road

Thank you for your patience while we make important improvements to Van Horn Road in Brownstown Township.

 WHAT’S BEING DONE?

Capital improvements to Van Horn Road between Arsenal Road and Telegraph Road in Brownstown Township include .73 miles of repaving, concrete repairs, sidewalk ramps, drainage, new signage, asphalt resurfacing and the installation of a concrete box culvert at Smith Creek.

 

WHEN WILL WORK TAKE PLACE?

Construction will begin on Tuesday October 3, 2017 and the road work is estimated to be completed in December, barring any unforeseen delays or inclement weather. Restoration of grass, if needed, will be completed as weather allows.

 

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Construction barrels will be placed on the side of the road beginning Friday, September 29.  During road construction and culvert installation, the road will be closed to through traffic but will allow access for local traffic. Traffic will be detoured in both directions to West Road to return to Van Horn Road.

 

Flaggers may be present to direct traffic as needed during construction.

 

Please use caution when driving through the work zone. Reduced speeds will be posted.

WHAT IF I HAVE A SPRINKLER SYSTEM?

If you have a sprinkler system on your property and are along the project corridor, you are asked to identify and clearly stake the locations of the system (heads, valves, and underground lines) or any other underground utilities that are not part of the MISS DIG program.  You can contact Wayne County’s Department of Public Services Field Engineering Division at 734.595.6504 ext. 2065.
