Online open house for Phillips Road Project begins Feb. 26
For Immediate Release: Thursday, February 25, 2021
The bridge on Phillips Road, west of Dick Road, will be replaced with a concrete box culvert. The timber bridge has reached the end of its useful life. The culvert is cost-effective and can be installed more quickly than a bridge, using pre-cast concrete pieces.
A four-to-six-week closure of Phillips Road is expected this summer. The traffic detour uses Old Cornelius Pass, Cornelius Pass, West Union and Helvetia roads.
Cost of the project is estimated at $666,000, funded through the County's Road Fund.
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 cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
