Road Closings

 

Amos Road

The Amos Road bridge over an unnamed tributary on Hobbs Creek was closed April 10, 2015 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 bridge is approximately 0.5 mile north of K-4 Highway.  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. 

 

Coronado Heights Road 

The Coronado Heights Road bridge over Pewee Creek was closed January 26, 2015 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 bridge is approximately 0.5 mile east of Ohio Street.  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. 


Reese Road

The bridge over West Spring Creek on Reese Road between Water Well Road and Farrelly Road was closed  November 25th. 2015 due to being structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

The April 21, 2015 Request for Action (RFA) which was approved unanimously by the Saline Board of County Commissioners authorized the construction of a new bridge on Wyman Road (one mile west of Reese Road) over West Spring Creek between Water Well Road and Farrelly Road in lieu of a new bridge on Reese Road.  The RFA also stated that the existing Reese Road bridge would be closed upon completion of the new Wyman bridge.  The Wyman bridge was completed and reopening to traffic on November 13th.  Closure of the existing Reese Road bridge should have minimum impact on agricultural activity and fire response since that bridge was load posted and could not be legally used by operators of heavy trucks and farm equipment.


Tyler Road

Tyler Road from Sundgren Road to Rose Hill Road will be closed Monday May 9th 2016 to allow Saline County Road & Bridge Department improve the road to be an emergency response detour.  The work is anticipated to be completed by the middle of June.  Of course, completion is dependent on unforeseen conditions such as adverse weather.
