SALINE COUNTY | October 19, 2023
A weekend full closure of Highway 229 between W. Jackman Trail and the interchange with Interstate 30 (I-30) is scheduled for 10 p.m. Friday, October 20 through 5 a.m. Monday, October 23.
Weather permitting, Highway 229 will be closed to allow crews to conduct pavement operations for a traffic shift between W. Jackman Trail and the frontage road north of I-30. See map NR 23-313-A for more information. Highway 229 traffic will be shifted west onto the new pavement when it reopens on Monday, October 23.
Traffic will be controlled with message boards, construction barrels, barricades, and signage. The public is advised to be cautious when traveling in the work zone and watch for slower traffic speeds. Areas adjacent to the Interstate may experience noise impacts during nighttime hours.
