City: Don't use local gravel roads as detour
WORTHINGTON -- The grading and reapplication of dust control on Paul Avenue from Interstate 90 to 240th Street, as well as on 240th Street/27th Street from Paul Avenue to U.S. 59, is tentatively scheduled to be completed Saturday.
Use of these roads by all traffic should be avoided during and immediately following this work.
The city of Worthington also reminds drivers that use of local gravel roads to bypass the U.S. 59 detour is creating problems for people living along those roads and for drivers that must use them. Through traffic should be utilizing the U.S. 59 detour to reduce impacts to the gravel roads and to residents along them. Only local traffic should be utilizing roads other than the U.S. 59 detour.
