Part of Lilly Mill to close for drainage work

The Lilly Mill Storm Drainage Project, which started in August, will continue into the new year. Construction equipment and materials are expected to arrive at the job site this week. Materials such as pipe, backfill material, and box culvert sections will be stored in the right-of-way and in easements.

In the coming weeks, Lilly Mill Road between Whiffletree and Ramblewood will be closed. This section of Lilly Mill is expected to be closed to pedestrians and vehicles for 60 days and possibly longer if bad weather causes delays.
