72nd Street East (270 Feet West of Bentley Road) (CRP 5845)


What's Happening 

Work to rebuild a slope along 72nd Street East began July 9. The work is expected to be completed by late fall.

The slope is located on the north side of 72nd Street East about 270 feet west of Bentley Road East. The slope failed during a rainstorm in December 2015. 

Traffic Impacts

As of Oct. 19, work will continue along 72nd Street East over the next few weeks. Crews will install drainage facilities and pave a section of roadway. This work is weather dependent.

Work hours will run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. 72nd Street East will remain open, although it may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours. Flaggers will be onsite to direct traffic during these hours.
Scarsella Bros. Inc. is the contractor. The construction cost is approximately $872,000, with $755,000 coming from federal Emergency Relief funds and $117,000 coming from County Road Funds.
