N. Ohio Street - Elm Street to North Street Improvements to Begin
On Monday, June 15th, the contractor for the City of Salina will begin construction for improvements on Ohio Street from Elm Street to North Street.
The first of three phases of work will take place on the east side of Ohio Street. Traffic on Ohio Street will be reduced to three lanes; one lane in each direction, with the center turn lane from Elm Street to south of the Ohio and North Street intersection. At the Ohio and North Street intersection, traffic will be reduced to two lanes, while still allowing left turns at the intersection.
North Street will be reduced to two lanes of traffic with one lane in each direction. Large truck traffic will be detoured by way of York Street.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2015. Traffic delays are to be expected and motorists should consider alternate routes.
