Please be advised that County Road (CR) 504, from CR 620 to Glen Alda Road, will remain closed to all through traffic until the fall of 2022. Access for local traffic on CR 504 will be maintained.

The County is in the process of finalizing arrangements which would permit the installation of a redesigned bridge to commence in the spring of 2022, with an anticipated completion date of the fall of 2022.

An alternative detour route during this road closure will be signed in the field as shown below.
