Road Closures

2nd Street Shoulder Work in Huxley: June 3-7, 2019


GrainsConnect will be conducting shoulder work on either side of the access road into Huxley next week, which may pose minor traffic disruptions and delays when equipment crosses the street. Traffic signs will be posted. A water truck will be used to mitigate dust from the construction, equipment will yield to traffic, and equipment will not stop on 2nd Street at any time. (A flagger will be used if this is required.)

2019 ROAD CONSTRUCTION

Range Road 22-5, known locally as Sharples Road, will be seeing an upgrade from Highway 575 to Highway 9. The construction will be beginning mid-May to June. The upgrade will consist of a shoulder pull and road sloping on the areas south from Hwy 575 to the top of the hill and south two miles from Twp Rd 28-4 to Highway 9. From the south hill to Twp Rd 28-4 there will be a curve realignment and new construction.

The roadway will remain open to local residents only, with some delays. Road closures will be limited as much as possible but may be required due to culvert replacements in the valleys. Residents affected by the closures will be given notification prior to construction.
