Default SR125 Closed - Adams/Brown County line

FYI, Route 125 is closed for 6 months between Decatur and West Union. They are replacing two bridges near the county line.

If you blinked and don't remember where Decatur is, it's east of Russellville and Georgetown.

LOL, you got it!

Yesterday I took a left at the main intersection in Decatur (Decatur-Eckmansville Rd) up to Eckmansville, take a right on Eckmansville Rd and that takes you back to 125 just on the other side of the closure. It's a nice ride.

You could also go south out of Decatur on Huff Hill to 763 to east on Suck Run to north on 41.

The official detour is 62 N out of Russellville to 32 east and 136 south back to 125.

Ken

Ken - we used to ride Suck Run years ago just for the fun of the name. It was a bad road... pavement was really bad back then.

Suck Run pavement isn't the greatest but it's not bad now.

We have such great named roads out here: Fishing Gut, Chicken Hollow, Lick Skillet..... Can you imagine having an address on some of those roads?

It's not scheduled to be open until Christmas!

BTW, SR763 is also closed again at Martin Hill (the Aberdeen end.) That should only be for another week.

Well there is always the detour I posted through the backroads of Adams county (that's redundant!).
