Orville Mudslide

What's happening

A section of Orville Road East reopened April 1 after being closed for several weeks due to a large mudslide.

The mudslide was located near the south end of Ohop Lake about a mile and a half north of State Route 161. 

The majority of the cleanup work from the mudslide is now complete.

Additional cleanup work in the ditches and along the slopes will be scheduled this spring once the area dries out. Flaggers will direct traffic through the work area when the work resumes.
