On Monday, March 16th Shakertown Road will be closed at US 35. During this closure, the Shakertown Road access to US 35 will be removed and the connection between the existing Shakertown Road and the new/extended portion of Shakertown Road to Factory Road will be constructed. This work is expected to take 45 days to complete. Emergency access while this work is in progress will not be possible.
In order to connect the new portion of Shakertown Road to the existing Shakertown Road, a new horizontal curve needs to be built. In order to provide a safe transition between the old and new roadways, a portion of the existing Shakertown Road must be removed to build this connection at the proper alignment and grade. With the removal of the old roadway and the building of the new curve in the same general area, there is no safe way to maintain traffic through this area while this work is in progress.
