Efforts under way to get Symmes Creek Road slip repaired

CHESAPEAKE — Officials from the village of Chesapeake are working to get movement on the repair of slip on Symmes Creek Road.

Council member Paul Hart said on Thursday that he has met with E.L. Robinson Engineering in Ironton to discuss work on the road, which he estimates leads to 65-100 houses.

“It’s slipped a little more this past week,” he said. “We need to get something done.

Hart said that he has consulted with former Mayor Dick Gilpin, who lives on the road, for advice on the matter.

He said he will take the information he received from the discussion with the firm to village council and Mayor Tommy Templeton. From there, he said the village would need to approach the county engineer.

Hart has also been circulating petitions on the matter.
