    McMACKIN ROAD CULVERT REPLACEMENT & SAFETY PROJECT

    Lake County Engineer, James R. Gills, P.E., P.S. announced that a culvert north of Lockwood Road is being replaced beginning this week.


    The work involves removing the existing pipe and replacing with a 54” reinforced concrete pipe.  As part of this project, McMackin Road will be widened beginning 600 feet south of Chapel Road.  Work also includes upgrading guardrail, installing curb and gutter, and a new storm sewer.


    For safety considerations, the road will be closed to through traffic for approximately 60 days.  Residents are urged to use the posted detour:  Chapel Road, Haines Road, and Lockwood Road.  The project is being funded by the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) and local gasoline and license tax.
