On Monday, April 17th, contractors will begin reconstruction of the Old Hearne Road and Wilkes Street intersection in the Lynndale Acres neighborhood. Crews will install new water and sanitary sewer lines, complete culvert improvements, and resurface the roadway in this phase of the Old Hearne Road/Wilkes Street infrastructure improvements project. Detours will be in place to guide traffic around the work area. Please note this intersection will remain closed for the next several weeks.
For those that typically walk to Bonham Elementary School from the north along Old Hearne Road, please note you will be detoured to a temporary crossing of Old Hearne Road at McHaney Drive. From here, pedestrians may walk north along Missouri Avenue and return to Old Hearne Road via Glacier Drive.
