Location:    Slater Road at Jordan Creek located approximately 800-feet west of Elder Road.

Project Details:     This project consists of replacing an existing deteriorating 10-foot wide by 7-foot tall steel arch culvert under Slater Road at Jordan Creek with an approximately 140-foot span bridge. Work will also include improvements to Jordan Creek to improve fish passage. 
                             

Traffic Limitations:  Slater Road will be closed at this location during construction which is expected to start in the spring of 2017 and run
through late 2017/early 2018. A signed detour route will be in place during construction which will likely include Elder Road, Unich Road and Lake Terrell Road for local traffic and I-5, Grandview Road, Kickerville Road, and Lake Terrell Road for truck traffic. A copy of the detour route can be viewed at the following link:
