The Saline County Road and Bridge Department has announced that part of S. Muir Road will be closed beginning Monday for drainage work.

S. Muir Road between W. Hedberg Road and Falun Road will be closed beginning Monday for the construction of a drainage structure. The closure will only be during the daylight working hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the department noted in information released Thursday.

"Through traffic may use the road outside of these hours," the department noted.

Motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations. Local and emergency traffic will always have access to private property within the sections of closed road but only from the side upon which the property lies.

Message to road users from Saline County

The Road and Bridge Department understands the public’s frustration and inconvenience with closing a road. However, road closures are a necessity in order to maintain the county’s infrastructure so that Saline County can have a reliable road network. Too often we see people drive around the road closure barricades. This action is not just unlawful, it is extremely unsafe. For your own safety and the safety of the construction workers, please obey all traffic signs.

For most projects, Saline County does not provide a signed detour around the project area. Local traffic must find their own route around the project for the duration of construction. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
