ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - The portion of Douglas Road from Ironwood Road to Twyckenham Drive is now closed.

This closure is anticipated to extend on for 60 days at which time Douglas will re-open in conjunction with a planned 30-day closure of the Douglas and Ironwood Road intersection.

UPDATE TO ORIGINAL STORY:

Officials now say Douglas Road will be closed from Ironwood Road to Twyckenham Drive beginning Monday, April 11.

This closure is anticipated to extend on for 60 days at which time Douglas will re-open in conjunction with a planned 30 day closure of the Douglas and Ironwood Road intersection.

Officials determined that it will be necessary to close this stretch of road one week earlier than previously scheduled in order to facilitate the final phase of the utility relocation efforts through next week, which will then allow the much anticipated road construction to begin immediately following the Easter weekend.

ORIGINAL STORY:

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - The closure of Douglas Road between Twyckenham Drive and Ironwood Road in St. Joseph County has been postponed.

Work was set to begin on Monday, April 4, but utility crews have fallen behind schedule in relocating their facilities, which has delayed the beginning of construction.

The road closure has been rescheduled for April 18 and is scheduled to continue for a period of 30 days.

After that, crews will then begin work on Phase II of the project, which will require the closure of Ironwood for a 30-day period as well.
