Additional lane restrictions will be imparted next week on Harry Sauner Road as part of the ongoing improvement project at Hillsboro.
With work progressing through the construction zone, crews from the Shelly Company will close Harry Sauner Road in the westbound direction between U.S. Route 62 (North High Street) and Roberts Lane for pavement repairs and paving. The closure will be in effect Monday, August 27, through Saturday, September 1, during daytime, working hours, and traffic may detour locally by way of Hobart Road/Carl Smith Drive and Careytown Road.
One lane of traffic will be maintained in the eastbound direction for motorists traveling from state Route 73 toward U.S. 62/N. High Street during these times, and the route will be open to two-way traffic during the evening and overnight hours.
The minor widening project includes the installation of new curbs, sidewalks, drainage and other features between the route's junction with N. High Street and Roberts Lane, and throughout most construction, traffic is being maintained by flaggers when crews are at work.
The Shelly Company was awarded a contract for approximately $924,927 to complete the project, and all work is scheduled to be completed in mid-fall.
