In the coming months, Boone County residents can expect to encounter road closures and updates in the area. The county has announced several upcoming projects that will impact local traffic, but will be important to the success of our growing county.
Effective April 1, 2023, CR 150 W from CR 375 N to CR 450 N has been vacated and can be closed, once closed it will not reopen to traffic. Additionally, there are upcoming closures planned for utility work along 150 W and 375 N, which could cause temporary disruptions to traffic flow.
Road work is also ongoing in the area of the Lilly project, with updates regarding the roads accessing the Lilly site. The vacated annexed section of Witt Road/150 W between 375 N and 450 N is expected to close within the first couple of weeks of April and will not re-open to public traffic.
Residents should also be aware of an upcoming temporary road closure planned for Witt Road just north of 250 N for a waterline installation for the Sunbrook Villas subdivision. This closure will not allow traffic to access 250 N from the north, detour signs have already been placed along 300 N from 150 W to the east.
Waterline construction for the Lilly site is set to begin on March 27 at 375 N just east of Witt Road/150 W. The closure (orange area) is within the Lebanon annexed area and is expected to last for two weeks, weather permitting. The waterline construction will also require a road closure of Witt Road/150 W just south of 375 N. This is expected to be a full closure that will take place after the 375 N section is re-opened. The 375 N/150 W detour will be signed along 300 N and SR 39.
Boone County officials advise all drivers to use caution and be aware of detours and road closures when driving in these areas.
