Construction To Begin At Busy Intersection

KSAL Staff - August 22, 2013 9:42 am

A construction project will alter traffic at a busy South Salina intersection.

According to the City of Salina, on Monday Pavers Inc. will begin removal and replacement of the pavement at the Magnolia Road and Belmont Boulevard intersection.

The first phase of work will be to replace the north half of the intersection. Two-way traffic will be reduced to single lanes in both directions on Magnolia Road, while Belmont Boulevard north of Magnolia Road will be closed to through traffic. Signage will be posted clearly marking traffic restrictions, including prohibiting left turns at the intersection throughout the duration of the project. Access to properties will be maintained.

Work is expected to last approximately six weeks, weather permitting.

Motorists should expect significant traffic delays and consider alternate routes.

Sure hope they fix the railroad tracks while they are digging all that up. Those tracks are dangerous!

6 weeks right???? How long did it take the other project on Magnolia over a year. Then they put those stupid islands down the middle that no one takes care of and the grass is growing between the bricks and is so appeasing. Those railroad tracks need to be removed and re-routed as they no longer serve any purpose cutting through Salina.

Another point did the city ask for any input from the people paying the bill for all of this? No they did not and it will be a disaster.

LOL well at lease they did not hire the same company again. I wonder if the police department will jump in again and give tickets for using other surrounding reidential streets?

Why all the negative? Be happy that this intersection is being reconstructed. Look at the positive side of things, not always the negative !!
