Buttermilk Falls Parkway will be closed on April 3, 2006, until November 3, 2006 for the removal and replacement of the bridge over Buttermilk Creek. The bridge is located south of Sunset Lane and north of Ox Lane
While this project will sever vehicular access between the north and south halves of the Reservation, detour signs will be in place to direct traffic to and from the Nature Center and Forest Picnic Area. The detour routes will use Chagrin River Road, Chardon Road and S.O.M. Center Road.
Access to North Chagrin Nature Center and Forest Picnic Area will be via Ox Lane off Chagrin River Road.

I have also heard that Wilson Mills Rd. will be closed between SOM Center Rd. and Chagrin River Rd. sometime this summer. Allow extra going to hikes at the North Chagrin Nature Center and also Forest Picnic Area
The APT to the south of the bridge will remain open during most phases of the project, but the bridle trail will be closed.
LEADERS PLEASE NOTE. Until hikers are familiar with the detour, please wait a few minutes before starting their hikes.
