TRAFFIC ALERT: ROUTE 650 TO CLOSE IN HENRY COUNTY NEXT WEEK
SALEM – As part of the continuing improvements and reconstruction of Route 650 (Irisburg Road), the road will close for a culvert replacement at the crossing of Fall Creek beginning on Monday, August 10.
The road will be closed between Route 644 (Hobson Road) and Route 697 (Mitchell Road). A detour will be in place with signs directing traffic.
The road is scheduled to re-open on August 24, weather permitting.
In addition to the culvert replacement, the project includes widening the travel lanes from eight feet to 11 feet in each direction and modifying curves of the roadway to improve sight distance.
