276th St. Reconstruction

Project Information

Current Status

June 1, 2018: 276th Street between US-31 and Devaney Road is now closed for road reconstruction.  The road is scheduled to be closed to all thru traffic for 90 calendar days, tentatively opening back up to traffic on or before Tuesday, July 31, 2018.  During the closure, local traffic should utilize the signed detour route of 266th Street and Devaney Road.  Property owners will continue to have access to their properties through the construction area.  This closure is part of the improvements to 276th Street which will widen the lanes and shoulders from US-31 to Gwinn Road. This closure is the second of three phases of work to take place.
