Shipton Road, from Wasserman Way to Ohio Street, will be closed to through traffic starting Thursday morning to permit a Saline County Road and Bridge Department crew to make temporary repairs in response to the pavement damage that resulted from the freeze/thaw cycle we recently experienced. The damaged area is about a quarter mile west of Ohio Street.
Permanent repairs cannot be made at this time since hot-mix asphalt will not be available until spring. Work is anticipated to be completed and Shipton Road reopened by the end of the day on Friday, January 26.
Owners of land along Shipton Road between Wasserman Way and Ohio Street will still be permitted to access their properties but only from the side of the work zone upon which their property lies.
