Shell Road intermittent road closure

Shell Road will be undergoing road and drainage improvements over the next several weeks.  Workers may be present in the roadway between the hours of 7 -5.   Residential traffic will be allowed to and from their respective streets, although portions of Shell Road will be ‘closed’ during certain times.  The traffic pattern will be modified at times, causing traffic to enter from a different end of Shell Road than they are accustomed to, but residential traffic and emergency traffic will be accommodated.  ‘Pass thru’ traffic from outside town limits is strongly encouraged to seek alternative routes during this time.  Shell Road will officially be closed to thru traffic during this work.  Workers will be present in the roadway trying to accomplish these improvements.  Please be mindful of these ongoing improvements and plan ahead.
