There is nothing as lovely as a visit to Colvin Run Mill in spring. However, it may now be a bit more difficult to reach Colvin Run Mill Historic Site due to highway construction. Starting this week and continuing through June 2022, all drivers leaving Colvin Run Mill will turn right and proceed to the east end of Colvin Run Road to access Route 7 eastbound and westbound as crews perform utility work and other construction activities at the west end of Colvin Run Road.
Drivers entering the mill on Route 7 westbound will still be able to turn left on to Colvin Run Road at the Route 7/Delta Glen Court/Colvin Run Road intersection (west end of Colvin Run Road). Drivers entering the mill on Route 7 eastbound will still be able to turn right on Colvin Run Road at the Route 7/Carpers Farm/Colvin Run Road intersection.
Site Manager Julie Gurnee said the site will place signage to ease visitors’ travels and access to the site. “Coming from the west, all visitors are able to turn onto Colvin Run Road at the first entrance (Delta Glen) to enter; but to exit to Route 7, visitors will all turn right out of the site to turn onto Route 7 at the Carpers Farm/Route 7 intersection,” Gurnee said.
