Yellow Creek Road Closure and Traffic Pattern Change

Bath Township, Ohio– Alan Brubaker, P.E., P.S., Summit County Engineer, would like to alert residents and motorists of a two-day closure of Yellow Creek Road, between Revere Road and Sand Run Road, located in Bath Township. The road will be closed on January 15th and January 16th. Motorists should anticipate using detour routes.

The closure is necessary due to a worsening roadway embankment landslide. The slope failure has reached the pavement of the westbound travel lane, creating a hazard to the motoring public. Crews will install concrete barriers, portable traffic signals, and restripe the roadway. After the closure, Yellow Creek Road between Revere Road and Sand Run Road will be a one-lane road with alternating traffic flows being controlled by signals.

The Summit County Engineer’s office recently contracted with GPD Group to design a repair plan for the landslide. The engineering firm is preparing plans, specifications, and cost projections for an extension of the existing retaining wall system in place on Yellow Creek Road.

The official detour for the two-day closure will extend from Revere Road to Smith Road to Sand Run Road. Detour routes will be posted. All work is subject to inclement weather.
