ROAD CLOSURE/DETOUR ALERT

A section of Ozark Isle Road has collapsed in a landslide. Below you will see photos of the area. We will be sending out a Nixle alert, countywide, to distribute the link to this blog post. Camden County Road and Bridge has set up barricades on both sides of the collapsed area.

To see videos taken as the situation develops, visit our Facebook page!

PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE AROUND THE BARRICADES.

This area is EXTREMELY unstable and still moving. PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH!

A detour has been set up which will take you down Summit Ridge Drive.

GPS Coordinates:

Barrier 1: 38°1.24′ min N 92°48.433′ min W

Landslide: 38°1.037′ min N 92°48.392′ min W

Barrier 2: 38°0.947′ min N 92°48.434′ min W


Update as of 9/13/2021 per Patrick Wolf, Camden County Road and Bridge Department:

The project is in the design phase right now. Once that is completed we will advertise for bids. We cannot really give a timeframe. It will really just come down to a contractor’s availability.

Update as of 8/4/2021 per Patrick Wolf, Camden County Road and Bridge Department:

I’m waiting for Lake Area Waste Water to get back to me about the cost of a temporary treatment facility. 

There’s really no new information that wasn’t published in the Lake Sun newspaper. Costs will be between $250-500k. We will contract this out. 

The debris will need to be removed down to solid rock, the rock will then need to be benched and the ravine filled with rip rap. There’s no time frame for completion. 

The engineers are fairly confident it can be completed before the end of the year. Their biggest concern is trying to find a contractor that has time to complete the project.

Question from the public: Do they have a plan?

Answer: In short: Not yet. The men you see in the video in the distance are surveyors brought in by the engineers who are working with the Camden County Road and Bridge Department. With the entire area STILL MOVING, they can survey and test the area for stability, but they can’t form the final plan on what will be done until it stops moving. We will continue to bring the public updates as we receive them. Thank you for your question!


This is an ongoing development and we will release information as soon as updates are available.
