Portion of road near Erie to close

Published: Saturday, June 21, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

ERIE – A portion of Sand Road, just south of Albany Road and extending 5 miles south to Moline Road, about 2 miles west of Erie, will close at 4:30 a.m. Monday for road recycling, a money-saving process new to Whiteside County.

In it, the road surface is ground up, mixed with oil, relaid and resealed.

Weather permitting, the road will reopen to all traffic July 2; it will remain open to local traffic during the work. There will be no marked detour.

Call the Whiteside County Highway Department, 815-772-7651, for more information.
