JULY 4 - 5, 2018.
POSTED JUNE 18, 2018

Quick update on the project in DeKalb County on U.S. Route 36 near Osborn:

Work continues on U.S. Route 36 near Osborn. As part of that work, the Route 33 North intersection at U.S. Route 36 is closed for reconstruction of the intersection.

It closed May 30 and will remain closed around the clock. Crews anticipate reopening it the evening of June 8.

Once the intersection reopens, traffic will once again be restricted to right turns only at the Route 33 North/Route M intersection and access across U.S. Route 36 will remain closed. This traffic pattern will remain in place for the remainder of the project, which should be complete in early July.

Throughout the project, U.S. Route 36 will remain open, but reduced to one lane each direction.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
