Parts of Linton Road to be closed

Monday, September 7, 2009 - 2:43pm

Commuters to Benton may want to leave a little early starting tomorrow.

Parts of Linton Road will be closing due to heavy construction.

Road officials say, they will be straightening out the narrow area known as "Dead Man's Curve," and they will also doing some reconstruction of the road.

The construction is also causing some safety concerns, because of where traffic will be redirected.

Much of the traffic will now be moving through school zones through Benton Elementary.

Officials say the construction should take 60 days, and they are hoping to stay as close to the deadline as possible.

In the meantime, they are asking drivers to be more cautious when heading through the area.
