Roads, rail crossings closing for repairs
Salem-Carroll Road, between Benton-Carroll Road and State Route 19, will be closed to through traffic starting April 26 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. until May 27.
The road will be open only to emergency traffic and buses.
Norfolk and Southern Railroad plans to close Toussaint-Portage Road, from Christiansen Road to Salem-Carroll Road and Cullman Road, from Portage South Road to State Route 19, for crossing repairs.
The closures are expected to be in effect April 26 to April 30.
The roads won’t be open to any traffic, including emergency and bus traffic.
Project to be re-bid
Following a recommendation of the county engineer’s office, the commissioners earlier this month rejected bids due to errors in pricing.
The bridge crosses Cedar Creek.
The streets will be swept monthly in June, August, and October to comply with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency storm water management plan.
State funds will be combined with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to replace piping, water meters, utility poles, exterior lighting, and electric meters.
