Town To Consider Closing Slate Rock Road During Winter Months

Town To Consider Closing Slate Rock Road During Winter Months

The Geneva Town Board will consider a resolution at its September 8 meeting to close Slate Rock Road from November 15 to April 15.  Slate Rock Road, which runs between Snell and Billsboro Roads, crosses a timber bridge over Wilson Creek.  In order to extend the life of the bridge, which will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace, Town Highway Superintendent Bernie Peck is recommending the road be closed to avoid heavy plow and salt trucks from clearing snow and salting the bridge during the winter months.  There are only two homes on Slate Rock Road and they are accessible from Billsboro Road; those homeowners have been personally contacted about the Town’s plan.

Anyone wishing to be heard on this proposal can come to the Town Board meeting at 6:00 p.m. on September 8 at the Town Hall, or can send a written comment or call the Highway Superintendent or Supervisor.

Bernie Peck can be reached at 315-945-1332 or at highwaysuper@townofgeneva.com, and Mark Venuti at 315-789-3922 or supervisor@townofgeneva.com.
