Williams Road Is Now Open
December 29, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: WILLIAMS ROAD TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE IN CONCORD TOWNSHIP – UPDATE
Williams Road in Concord Township between Cascade Road and approximately 0.4 miles north of SR 608 is open to traffic effective immediately.
Due to the timing of the completion, asphalt is no longer available this year. Therefore, concrete was placed so that the road can be re-opened to traffic. Asphalt paving and new guardrail installation on the west side of Williams Road will be completed in the spring once the asphalt plants re-open for the 2024 construction season.
Smart Salting Practices
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly while maintaining roads for safe travel during snow/ice events, Concord Township follows sensible salting practices. For more information, view the document below.
The Service Department will provide the labor to install snow barricades for residents living in Concord Township at no charge. The barricade consists of an aluminum board, two steel posts, address numbers and hardware. The materials must be purchased from Concord Township at the cost of $50.00. Barricades absorb the impact of heavy snow being discharged by the snow plows. Please keep in mind that this barricade is not a guarantee that your mailbox will not be damaged during the course of the winter season. If you are interested in having the Service Department install a snow barricade, please fill out the application located at the top of our website under Forms and Applications, and return it to Town Hall. This will be a one-time installation and all maintenance thereafter is the responsibility of the resident. There is a $15.00 charge for any reinstallation of barricades. If you have more questions please call (440) 350-3225 for assistance.
