Glassford Road is closed over the Ellwood Drain at Spence Line from Wednesday, December 16 at 8 a.m. until further notice due to the condition of the structure.

Rose Beach Line over South Marsh Creek is closed because of erosion from Lake Erie along the edge of the road. It’s unknown how long the closure will last.
