Improving drainage and roadway safety
Construction as part of this improvements project will include replacing six culverts, replacing and adding guardrails, and addressing soil erosion concerns at two road embankment locations along ravines. In addition, there will be roadway widening at the culvert locations.
The updates made on Dayton River Road will improve the safety of people driving, increase the longevity of the roadway and reduce drainage issues requiring frequent maintenance.
Expect closures and traffic impacts
On Monday, April 3, we will close Dayton River Road to through traffic between Brockton Lane and North Diamond Lake Road.
You will need to use a detour to get around. The detour route for through traffic is:
- Brockton Lane (County Road 13)
- North Diamond Lake Road (County Road 144)

Using the signed detour will keep you and others from experiencing additional delays and getting frustrated. It also helps local streets stay safe for the people who live, work and play in the area.
People walking, biking and rolling will need to use the detour route or other alternative routes outside the construction zone.
Local access during the closure
While the road will be closed to through traffic, Dayton River Road will remain open for people needing access to their homes and local destinations. However, there will be hard closures where work is happening.
We will maintain access so that you can still get to your home, place of work or local destinations, but how you gain access to these places will change depending on where crews are working. We will have signs and flaggers on-site to inform you of access changes.
