FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  CRILE ROAD WIDENING PROJECT IN CONCORD TOWNSHIP

The Lake County Commissioners recently awarded a contract for the widening of the Crile Road to three (3) lanes between Auburn Road and a point 550’ north of Girdled Road in Concord Township. The contract was awarded to Ronyak Paving, Inc. of Burton, Ohio.

Weather permitting, Ronyak Paving, Inc. will begin milling the entire road on Tuesday July 6th. The milling operation will be performed under flag person control. Two way-way traffic will be maintained at all times.

On Monday July 12th, Crile Road will be reduced to one-lane southbound traffic on the west side of the road while pavement widening, intersection construction and driveway replacement is performed.  Access to all businesses as well as side streets will be maintained at all times. If a business has two (2) drives, one will remain open until the second is complete. Businesses with only one drive will have their drives constructed one half at a time.

Northbound traffic will be detoured via Girdled Road, SR 44 and Auburn Road. This second phase is expected to be completed on or around August 6, 2021.

The third phase of the project is expected to begin on or around August 10, 2021. The third phase will continue the one-lane southbound traffic pattern, but shift traffic to the newly constructed pavement on the eastside of the road, while the pavement is widened on the west side of Crile Road. Again, access to the Crile Road businesses will be maintained at all times as all drives will be completely open before the contractor is permitted to begin phase 3 of the project. Phase 3 is scheduled to be completed August 21st.

Final paving, berming, sign installation, and seeding/mulching is scheduled to be completed late September of this year.

Please remember that all dates are weather dependent. The driving public is asked to obey the posted detour and refrain from moving barricades.

Questions and comments regarding the project should be directed to the Lake County Engineers Office, Traci Salkiewicz, PE, Assistant Chief Deputy Engineer: Phone: (440) 350-2016, Fax: (440) 352-8133

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

CALLOW ROAD – EMERGENCY BRIDGE CLOSURE

Effective immediately, Callow Road at the bridge over East Creek in Leroy Township will be closed to all traffic.  The bridge is located approximately 0.3 miles south of SR 86.

The Lake County Engineer’s Office has been monitoring this location.  The most recent inspection showed continued deterioration of the embankment and wingwalls one of the quadrants that requires traffic to be diverted from driving on the structure.

The road will remain closed until further notice.

We apologize for the short notice and the inconvenience but this office believes that the emergency closure is necessary to protect public welfare and safety.  Drivers should not try to drive around and/or move the barricades to gain access.  Additionally, due to the unsafe nature of the wingwall, the public should not be in the stream near the bridge.

Suggested alternate route:

SR 86 to Girdled Road
