2022 Dryden Road HMA Overlay Project
The Lapeer CRC received funding from the State of Michigan’s Rural Task Force to assist with the placement of an HMA Asphalt Overlay on Dryden Road. The HMA Asphalt Overlay will be placed on Dryden Road from 1) Blood Road easterly to Rochester Road, and 2) from the east Dryden Village Limits easterly to Van Dyke Road (M-53). This project will include, but is not limited to select drainage improvements, crack sealing, milling existing asphalt, HMA asphalt paving, gravel shoulders, guardrail improvements, pavement marking and permanent traffic sign updates. The road will be open to traffic during the construction process. However, intermittent lane closures, with traffic regulators flagging traffic, will be required. EXPECT DELAYS during the times of lane closures or seek alternate route. Follow the Lapeer CRC’s Facebook Page and this website for construction schedule updates as they are known.
