This closure is expected to be in place through mid-July, weather pending. During that time, Catco Construction will be reconstructing and stabilizing that portion of the roadway.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is funding the majority of the repairs, estimated at $803,000. Crews will be stabilizing the slope, from the bed of the creek, up to roadway, and then reconstructing the road.

A second section of Zoar Valley Road, between Hammond Hill Road and Grote Road, will also be repaired this summer, with work expected to begin the end of July.
