If you have driven on Jefferson Road near Clark Lake over the last few days, it’s hard to miss the signs.  The Jackson County Department of Transportation explains there will be single lane closures on Jefferson between US127 and Hyde Roads beginning tomorrow (Wednesday, February 17), weather permitting:

“This project will also include the installation of signs, and new pavement markings and is anticipated to be complete this summer. JCDOT was awarded an MDOT safety grant to make this project possible. Jefferson Road has a history of fixed object crashes, and removing trees in the right-of-way will help make the road safer for the motoring public.
No detour will be posted and motorists should seek an alternative route.”

Spokesperson Kelly Fuller adds, “Traffic will only be restricted during tree cutting.  The contractor has until the end of March to complete tree removals on this project.”
