The Cole County Department of Public Works would like to advise the motoring public that construction of the roadway slide repair on Lower Bottom Road will begin on April 4th, weather permitting. The road has been closed since July 2015 when heavy rain storms weakened the soil under the road cause it to slide down the fill slope. As a result of the storm damage in the county, FEMA issued a disaster declaration. Because of this declaration the county is eligible for damage repair reimbursement.
The work to repair the road is expected to be completed by the end of May at which time it will be re-opened to the public.
The Cole County Department of Public Works would like to apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Any questions in reference to this work or the road closure should be directed to Public Works at 636-3614.
