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
