Jeff Million â€” project engineer from DLZ â€” told the Marshall County Commissioners that the section of 13th Road near the bridge officially closed to traffic Oct. 12 and will remain closed until the new bridge is complete, a scheduled date of June 30 of next year. Crews officially have until July 13 to finish the project.
PLYMOUTH â€” Lincoln Highway will open once again on Saturday â€”Â but motorists would be advised to proceed with caution.
Crews have had the road shut down to work on the new Pioneer Drive that will connect S.R. 17 with U.S. 30 and crosses Lincoln Highway. At the point the roads intersect will be a new four-way stop, and motorists are being advised to be aware of the new stop.
Signs will be placed in the area to warn of the upcoming stop. While Pioneer is not yet open for crossing traffic, drivers on Lincoln Highway will still be stopping in the interim.
