A road construction project near Salina South High School enters its second phase this week.
According to the City of Salina, On Wednesday crews will begin the second of two phases of the removal and replacement of the pavement at the Magnolia Road and Belmont Boulevard intersection.
The second phase of work will be to replace the south half of the intersection. Two-way traffic will remain confined to single lanes in both directions on Magnolia Road, while Belmont Boulevard south 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 continue for approximately three weeks, weather permitting. Motorists should expect significant traffic delays and consider alternate routes.
