UPDATE: The road is now open.
UPDATED: The road will remain closed through Friday according to state transportation spokeswoman Christine Myers. Due to some unforeseen complications, the work had to be extended.
State officials have closed down a major corridor spanning through Huron Township near Sheldon Marsh Nature Preserve.
Beginning Monday, Cleveland Road (U.S. 6) between Sheldon Marsh and Elizabeth drives is shut down for three days, weather permitting.
All motorists must detour off this impacted area, state transportation spokeswoman Christine Myers said. Westbound traffic, for instance, must take U.S. 6 to Ohio 2 to U.S. 250 to U.S. 6 to get fully around. Eastbound traffic must take a reverse route.
The scheduled work revolves around crews replacing an existing clay tile culvert with a new culvert pipe, which protect pipelines under roadways.
State officials expect the project to cost about $20,000.
For questions about the project, people can call 419-281-0513.
