BUSINESSES REMAIN OPEN ALONG CRILE ROAD AND AUBURN ROAD DURING CONSTRUCTION
In Concord Township, the Shops at Gristmill will continue to be open and accessible from Crile Road. Effective Thursday, September 8th, Auburn Road will be closed between SR 44 and Crile Road. Access to Crile Road is maintained through Capital Parkway, which is completely open from the roundabout on the west side of SR 44, at Auburn Road, all the way to Crile Road. There will also be one southbound-only lane maintained on Auburn Road from Concord-Hambden to Crile Road, providing access to businesses as well as access to SR 44 from the new Capital Parkway.
With these new improvements, there will be some new temporary detours. Southbound SR 44 drivers will not be able to access Auburn Road, east of SR 44, for the next 60 days. Those travelling to Red Hawk Grille, Quail Hollow Resort, and the other businesses and residences east of SR 44 will need to use alternate routes.
Alternate routes include continued travel southbound on SR 44 to either Capital Parkway or Girdled Road. Drivers needing access Auburn Road will take Girdled Road east to Ravenna Road, then head north to Concord-Hambden Road (Rt. 608), and finally turn left (heading west) to Auburn Road.
Drivers exiting I-90 can also travel northbound and exit at SR 84. Drivers should head west on SR 84 and turn south on either Morley Road or Prouty Road. Those on Prouty should continue onto Auburn, and those on Morley will need to turn left onto Prouty to continue to Auburn Road. Detour signs are posted.
Additionally, the portion of Auburn Road located west of SR 44 is now open. All businesses located near the Tri-Point Medical Center are completely accessible.
