Marshall County Highway Superintendent Neal Haeck told the commissioners Monday morning that they are working to repair Maple Road.
The construction project on U.S. 6 at the new U.S. 31 site has caused a road closure in that area and drivers are attempting to use the back roads to get around the inconvenience instead of the suggested detours that utilize highways. Semi truck drivers are even using back roads for a quicker route and are tearing up the surface. Haeck said the county roads are not equipped to handle that type of traffic and “No Thru Truck” signs have been posted along the road to deter further damage.
