Press release from Allen County Government:
Portion of Hollopeter Road Closed Due to Water Damage
The Allen County Highway Department announced today that a section of Hollopeter Road near Leo has been closed due to damage caused by recent heavy storms.
Updated portion: Hollopeter has lane restrictions in effect between Hull and Painter Roads from now through Sunday. Â Randy Knach, Operations Supervisor for the North Maintenance Barn, said the heavy rains washed out three or four holes in an area of Hollopeter where a three-foot drainage pipe was installed a year ago.
Knach said “road closed” signs have been erected in the affected area and that motorists will need to find an alternate route. He added repair work may be finished as early as tomorrow but could extend into early next week.
Originally posted April 8, 2010, however, a correction to the original press release was made by Allen County.
