A slope failure in Mill Creek Park has resulted in the temporary closure of a section of East Newport Drive between Kreider’s Entrance and Kiwatha Drive. For the safety of all park patrons, access to and through this construction site by pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles is strictly prohibited. This section of roadway will remain temporarily closed while the planning and construction of this extensive roadway repair project is completed.
To maintain use of and access to the East Newport Boat Launch, East Newport Drive between the Boat Launch and Kiwatha Drive has been opened to two-way vehicular traffic. For the duration of the drive repair project, vehicles are temporarily permitted to drive southbound on East Newport Drive from Kiwatha Drive to the Boat Launch. All park patrons are encouraged to be safe, patient, and adhere to the new circulation patterns in this area.
A completion date has yet to be established for the drive repair project, closures, and detours.
