S. Richland road work may cause delays

Road projects in south Richland will close Shockley Road for four days this week and create lane closures on other streets.

Kennedy Road and Duportail Street also will have lane closures during the first part of the week.

Shockley Road will be closed today through Friday from Keene to Fuji Way. It will reopen Saturday and Sunday, with a gravel surface. It will then close Monday to Sept. 3.

A detour will divert traffic to the Keene Road-Brantingham Street intersection, down Westcliffe Boulevard and Chardonnay Drive. The Brantingham Road intersection will be controlled with traffic devices and monitored during the detour.

Crews also will be preparing to activate the traffic signal at the Keene-Kennedy intersection, which will create some temporary lane closures.
