This is a news release from the Lake County Engineer’s Office dated 6/12/23:
Effective immediately, a section of Williams Road between Cascade Road and approximately 0.4 miles north of SR 608 in Concord Twp. is closed to all traffic.
The Lake County Engineers Office has been monitoring this section of roadway on the hill for several months. Continued movement and settling has necessitated the road closure.
A consulting engineering firm has been retained and construction drawings and specifications have been prepared for installation of a retaining wall to shore the failing slope. However, funding is currently not available to proceed with the bidding process. Therefore, the road will remain closed to all traffic until funding is available.
Posted Detour: Huntoon Rd to SR 86 to Girdled Rd to SR 608
We apologize for 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.
