Cutler Road Bridge Reconstruction 2022

The County has contracted with Davis Construction to remove and replace the bridge over the Looking Glass River on Cutler Road.  This will require the closing of Cutler Road at the intersection of Clintonia and Cutler roads on the east side of the bridge and Cutler and Grand River on the west side.  A detour route has been established using Grand River, Peake, Grange (in Clinton County), and Cutler (east of Clintonia).  There are other routes available that may be shorter.  It's estimated that the bridge will be open to traffic by the end of December.
