  • This dip in North Liberty Road, looking north, approaching Lower Fredericktown-Amity Road is being filled in to level the sight line at the intersection. A crew was working Wednesday installing water grates and pipe to drain both sides of the road. The deepest part of the long fill of shale stone will be 6 feet as it slopes away from the crossroads. The work is being done to improve the safety at the intersection, which is being changed to a four-way stop. North Liberty Road, just south of Lower Fredericktown-Amity Road, will be closed beginning Monday for approximately two weeks for the project.  style=
