This is an area that you want to avoid
Washington Street is definitely a place you want to avoid as you navigate your way through Round Lake and Round Lake Park. Even though it’s closed to thru traffic there are always drivers who still continue to use it even though they don’t live on Washington Street. As you can see in the video below, there isn’t much left as far as asphalt to drive on. I was over that way just a few days ago at the Township Center and the activity nearby looked like it had wrapped up but today all the big equipment was back in that area. Fortunately there aren’t any businesses that are being badly impacted by the closure other than a local bar. last year when they reworked the intersection at Cedar Lake and Washington businesses like Lily’s Hot Dogs struggled to make ends meet with all the trucks staging out in front of their driveways.
The video was taken while heading eastbound from Cedar Lake Road all the way to the Avon Township Center near Hainesville Road.
