Bridge Out on Silica Sand Rd.
Those interested in riding directly to Warren from Garrettsville, will need to rethink their route, at least until the end of October 2021. If leaving the Headwaters Trail in Garrettsville via Silica/Pierce Rd and continuing east on Silica Sand Rd, you will find the bridge over Eagle Creek has been removed for replacement. The road is blocked just beyond Haul Rd, which appears to be a private, packed gravel service road leading to Rt 82. The gate may be open (it was on 8/16). The official detour appears to be Parkman Rd. (from Pierce to 82). Once on 82, continue east to Shanks-Downes Rd (N), Shanks-Phalanx Rd (E), Braceville-Robinson Rd (N), and Eagle Creek Rd (E). If heading towards the Courthouse District, turn left on N. Levitt Rd., ride thru the CVS parking lot at the intersection with 422, and ride on the sidewalk (if busy) until you cross the river. Then left on Tod Ave. Easy Peasy from there.
