Road Closures

Armstrong Road (East of Lightville Rd to Burma Rd)

Armstrong Road, from Lightville Road to Burma Road is closed to through traffic due to the condition of an existing drainage structure located 0.5 miles east of Lightville Road. Saline County Road and Bridge is currently designing a replacement structure. At this time, we are unsure when the road will be opened up to traffic. A signed detour route will NOT be installed. Therefore, motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations. Local and emergency traffic will be provided access to private property within the sections of closed road at all times but only from the half mile side upon which the property lies.

McReynolds Road (East of Kipp Rd to Gypsum Valley Rd)

The McReynolds Road bridge over Spring Creek which is located 0.3 mile west of Gypsum Valley Road was closed March 16, 2018 to permit the Saline County Road and Bridge Department Engineering staff the opportunity to perform a detailed assessment of the condition of the bridge. The closure of this bridge does not cut off access to any private properties.

Federal law requires that bridges that cannot be certified to carry at least a three-ton load must be closed to protect public safety. It is not known at this time how long this bridge will be closed.

Stimmel Road (Between Hedville Rd and Hohneck Rd)

Stimmel Road, from Hedville Road to Hohneck Road will be closed Monday, November 26th, for the replacement of an existing deteriorated drainage structure with a new reinforced concrete box (RCB) drainage structure. The structure is located on Stimmel Road, 0.4 mile east of Hedville Road. No through traffic will be possible during the construction period. Motorists are advised to allow a few extra minutes of travel time to reach their destinations. Local and emergency traffic will be provided access to private property within the sections of closed road at all times but only from the sides of the construction zone upon which the property lies. The only times these properties may not be accessible might be during possible critical stages of construction when it is impractical to carry on construction operations and simultaneously allow local traffic. Completion of the new RCB and reopening of this section of Stimmel Road is anticipated by the end of January. Of course, completion by this date is dependent on the weather.

Saline County opened bids on the 2018 Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) Package on March 6th. This project consists of the replacement of nine existing drainage structures with new RCB culverts. The low bidder on this package of RCBs was Reece Construction Company, Inc. of Salina. They were awarded a contract for $815,989.00. The project is funded from the 2-mil fund for bridge and culvert replacement. This particular RCB is seventh of the nine to be replaced.
