Sandridge Culvert Announcement
Attention Lake Asbury Area Residents:
Beginning June 25, reconstruction of a culvert will require closure of a portion of Sandridge Road. No through traffic will be permitted on Sandridge Road between the entrances of the Rolling Hills and Silver Creek subdivisions. We suggest the following detours:
• If you are located east of the construction site, then your detour is east on Sandridge Road to Russell Road/209.
• If you are located west of the construction site, your detour is west on Sandridge Road to Henley Road.
This project is expected to be completed before the start of school in August. Project progress is weather dependent. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Q: Will signal timing be adjusted due to the detour?
A: The County will monitor traffic patterns associated with the detour. Appropriate temporary signal timing adjustments may be made to accommodate the new traffic patterns.
Q: Will the intersection of Sandridge Rd and Russell Rd (County Road 209) have a Traffic Signal?
A: A project is underway to construct a left turn on County Road 209 at Sandridge Rd. The Project is currently in the design phase with a projected construction start of Spring 2021.
Q: Why is the project not part of the resurfacing project?
A: The resurfacing near the box culvert was due to safety concerns with rutting (depression along the wheel path). The box culvert replacement design and permitting was on-going.
Q: Why is the project being done?
A: The box culvert was built in the 1950’s, which has reached the end of its service life and requires replacement. The improvements proposed will extend the culvert to eliminate the need of guard rail and provide a paved shoulder along the section of improvements.
Q: What is the anticipate designed service life of the box culvert?
A: Approximately 50 years.
Q: Will the existing wooden bridge remain open during the work activities?
