The Saline County Road and Bridge Department has announced the closing Wednesday of Niles Road between Riordan Road and Humbargar Road.
That portion of Niles Road has been closed so that a crossroad drainage structure can be replaced. The project is expected to be completed by July 1, 2019.
Road closures and project completions are dependent on weather conditions. A dedicated signed detour route will not be installed for the closure so Road and Bridge advises motorists to plan for a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations. Local and emergency traffic will be provided access to private property within the sections of closed road at all times but only from the half-mile side upon which the property lies.
