Clark Hill Road to close Sept. 7

Clark Hill Road, south of Tile Flat Road, will close from Sept. 7-Oct. 12, for bridge replacement.

All travelers must use the signed detour (see map) during the closure.

The project will replace the decaying timber bridge with a wider single-span concrete bridge with guardrails.

Activity Update 9/6/2018: Clark Hill Road, south of Tile Flat Road, will be closed Sept. 7-Oct. 22. All travelers must use alternate routes. (see map)

Please note that River Road is also under construction and limited to one lane of traffic controlled by flaggers, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays. This project overlap is due to an acceleration of the Clark Hill Road project schedule to address unsafe bridge conditions.

All commercial vehicles should follow the signed detour (see map) or use Scholls Ferry Road to Highway 219. Passenger and non-commercial vehicles may use other alternate routes, such as Scholls Ferry Road to Tile Flat Road.

Washington County is committed to planning, building and maintaining a great transportation system, ensuring the safety of all roadway users, and operating the County roadway system in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
