CREEK ROAD EMERGENCY SLIP REPAIR BEGINS
Butler County Engineer's Office reports that construction to
repair the Elk Creek Road slip will begin Monday, September 28,
2020. On March 20, 2020, Elk Creek Road was closed 1.4 miles
north of Howe Road and 1.4 miles south of S.R. 122 due to high
water and a failed embankment slope on the east side of the road.
A $553,202 contract has been awarded to W.E. Smith Construction,
which will perform the remediation of the embankment using a
drilled shaft retaining wall.
Creek Road will remain closed during the emergency slip repair
project, and motorists will continue using the same detour. The
road is tentatively scheduled to reopen the week of November
Elk Creek Road traffic will detour east on Howe Road, northeast
on Trenton Franklin Road, and west on S.R. 122. Southbound traffic
will reverse this route.
