Construction Updates

NEW IMPACTS

  • Crile Road Widening Project In Concord Township – The Lake County Commissioners recently awarded a contract for the widening of 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 6. The milling operation will be performed under flag person control. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times.

    On Monday, July 12, 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 21.Final paving, berming, sign installation and seeding/mulching is scheduled to be completed late September of this year.

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

  • I have a road complaint, whom do I contact?

    Being a Township, it depends on what road you live. The Ohio Department of Transportation takes care of State Routes; the Lake County Engineer maintains County owned roads, while the Concord Township Service Department takes care of Township roadways. Visit the Service Department’s page for more information.

  • Where do I report lawn damage during snow plow operations?

    Concord Township maintains the right to remove snow off Township roadways and place it within the right of way next to the road or cul-de-sac. Unfortunately, on occasion we may plow up grass/sod. Please report your observations to our office at (440) 350-3225. We will log it and schedule it for repair during the spring after April 15th.

  • If my mailbox is damaged during snow removal, what can I do?

    As a courtesy, Concord Service Department will evaluate down mailboxes and reattach and perform minor repairs if necessary after snow removal operations have been completed. Mailboxes most frequently come off after being hit by plowed snow and infrequently by the plow itself.

    View Resolution 2005-60, Mailbox Replacement Policy regarding mailbox replacement limits. We recommend that you consider adding a snow barricade for added protection

  • How do I get a mailbox snow barricade?

    Snow barricades are available to the residents at the cost of $40.00. Service Department personnel provide a one-time installation. Please fill out the Snow Barricade Application. There is a $15.00 fee for any reinstallation of barricades request thereafter.

  • What is the Township winter snow removal policy?

    If you are a new resident to Concord Township the Service Department only maintains side streets and subdivisions within the community. The Ohio Department of Transportation takes care of Ohio State Routes and Lake County Road Department is responsible for all connector roads. View Township Roadways for a complete list of state and Lake County roadways.

    The Service Department bases its preparation and response to winter conditions on the latest advances in technology and weather monitoring available. The Lake County Sheriff’s Office often alerts the Service Department to changing conditions so that we can respond effectively. Current department strategy has Concord divided into six zones covering approximately 142 lane miles. Our crews plow open the streets as needed and then treat hills, curves and intersections with a deicer, primarily rock salt.

    Concord Service Department maintains a sensible salting program. This treatment method is an effective response to frequently changing conditions in our lake effect prone area. This discipline provides effective measures according to current conditions and high traffic volume periods.

    We urge residents to put safety first. Allow added time for travel and prepare for sudden changes in road conditions. Focus on driving and avoid anything that might distract your ability to react safely.

  • Can the Township help me with a driveway culvert replacement?

    Yes, we offer a culvert replacement program. The cost for this service is $200.00 for the removal and replacement of the original culvert. The homeowner is responsible for the purchase of the pipe and any asphalt or concrete replacement following the installation by Township personnel. Please fill out the Culvert Pipe Installation Form. Lake County roads and state routes require permits. Contact our office for details at (440) 350-3225.

  • What do I do if my roadside ditch needs cleaning?

    Contact the Service Department for an evaluation of the ditch. On most occasions we will clean and regrade the ditch to its original design function at no cost to the resident. Please note that we only perform this maintenance on Township roadways.

  • Who should I contact to report a road condition such as a pot hole or debris in the road?

    During regular business hours contact the Service Department at (440) 350-3225. If outside the regular work schedule and the observation requires immediate attention such as a tree across the road, you can call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at (440) 350-5531 who then can contact the appropriate personnel.

  • Is the Service Department responsible for all roads in the Township?

    Township roadways are maintained by three separate road departments: Ohio Department of Transportation, Lake Engineers Department and the Concord Service Department. View Township Roadways for a complete list of state and Lake County roadways.
