PennDOT is moving up the timeline of a Butler County road soon to be closed in order to allow for crews to repair damage done during a landslide.
A portion of Dick Road will now close at noon on Thursday, August 29th and remain closed until Oct. 11 to allow repairs to an embankment. Previously, that road was to be open until Monday, September 9th.
The closure will affect Dick Road between Shannon Road in Connoquenessing Township to Country Lane Road in Franklin Township. The cost to repair the embankment failure will be about $275,000.
A detour will be in place taking drivers from Shannon Road- to Prospect Road- to Country Lane Road- back onto Dick Road.
