Locust Road Improvements

At long last! We are very excited to announce that Locust Road was opened for traffic on Wednesday, November 25th. A commemorative ribbon cutting was held on November 25th to celebrate the opening of the road.

“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success.”
-Henry Ford

City officials, contractors, project partners, and community members commemorated the opening of Locust Road with a ribbon cutting.

While Locust Road will now be open for normal traffic, construction activity will continue on a few items outside the roadway. These include removal of existing utility poles, installation of new streetlights, burying of utility lines, constructing new rock ditch checks, and erosion control.

Important Info: Mail Delivery and Garbage Collection

Normal operation of mail delivery and garbage collection for residents along Locust Road will resume after Sunday, November 29th.
