- 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.
