The road is scheduled to be closed to all thru traffic for 90 calendar days, tentatively opening back up to traffic on or before Friday September 7,2018.

This closure is part of the improvements to 276th Street which will widen the lanes and shoulders from US-31 to just east of Webster Pit Rd. This closure is the third of three phases of work to take place.
