The Saline County Road and Bridge Department has announced that part of Halstead Road will be closed next week.
According to a news release, Halstead Road from Stimmel Road south to Armstrong Road will be closed Monday through August 25, 2019, to permit Ameritrack Railroad to repair the railroad crossing. The length of the closure will be dependent on the weather.
A signed detour will be installed by the railroad company. Access to the Ell-Saline Elementary School will be maintained throughout construction. Motorists are advised to allow 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.
