The City of Benton will need to close a portion of Shenandoah Road for several months. They will be replacing the bridge on Shenandoah, near the intersection at Salt Creek Road. The project will begin Monday, January 25th and if weather permits, the goal is to finish by the end of May 2021. The City currently has a sign telling motorists to get ready for it to start. There will be a detour around the area later.
You can see the video of the Benton Streets and Drainage Committee meeting below, where this was discussed. Contact a committee member with any concerns.
Among other items discussed were a sidewalk on Smithers Drive, from Military Road until the Saline County Library location.; and a possible roundabout at the intersection of Congo Road and Shenandoah.
