MEDIA ADVISORY: Boston Mills Road Daytime Only Closure


Boston Township, OH– Summit County Engineer Alan Brubaker, PE, PS would like to alert residents and motorists of a geotechnical study being done on Boston Mills Road between Olde 8 Road and Riverview Road. Boston Mills Road will need to be closed during the daytime only for the engineering consulting firm to perform soil borings. Boston Mills Road has several active landslides and getting cores of the soils in the area is vital in determining how to fix the landslides. The study calls for 25 soil borings to be completed with an average drilling depth of 86 feet. The soil borings will begin on Monday, August 19th and be completed by September 6th. The estimated closure time daily is 6:30am to 5:30pm. The road will be open on weekends and during the Labor Day holiday.

This study is partially funded by the Eastern Federal Lands Access Program, which makes grant funds available to local governments responsible for roads that run through federal lands. Mannik and Smith Group holds the contract for the $356,000.00 study.

The detour route will be posted. The detour route involves Riverview Road, State Route 303, and Olde 8 Road. All work is subject to inclement weather.
