Mill Creek road will open briefly

Although a portion of road in Mill Creek MetroPark has been closed, a temporary adjustment will be made so park goers can enjoy a spring milestone.

The park will permit people to travel to Daffodil Meadow from East Newport Drive and just beyond, where they will have to turn around.

The road has been closed since early 2020 after the road was found to be failing. Since then, East Newport Drive has been closed to motorists and pedestrians.

Park visitors are strongly urged to follow directional and regulatory signage as well as any barricades in the area of the road slope.

An engineering firm studied the rate at which the slope has been growing, as well as the cause of the slope.

Initially, cracks in pavement were noticed as they grew, even when the park replaced pavement.
