Belmont Boulevard between Hartland Avenue and Allen Street Work to Begin

On Monday, October 14, 2013, Pavers Inc. of Salina will begin switching traffic on Republic Avenue, between Third and Fourth Streets, to begin removal and replacement of the eastbound lane.

Eastbound traffic on Republic Avenue approaching the workzone will be re-directed to Ellsworth Street. Signage will be posted clearly marking traffic restrictions and detours.

Also on October 14, Pavers Inc. will begin working to remove and replace pavement on southbound Belmont Boulevard between Hartland Avenue and Allen Street.

Southbound traffic will be shifted to share the northbound lanes on Belmont Boulevard for the duration of the closure. Work at both locations is expected to last approximately four to six weeks with access to properties being maintained. Motorists should expect traffic delays and consider alternate routes.
