Whalen Road closed between Seminole Hwy. and Mutchler Road beginning June 10, remaining so into early July.

Crews will resurface the road and replace the culverts during the three week period. The city’s suggested detour would have drivers use Mutchler Road, Lacy Road and Seminole Hwy. to bypass the work area.

The project also includes widening the shoulders on the road used frequently by bicyclists, at a cost of $250,000. The funding was a sticking point for some alders during last year’s budget process but was eventually approved as a one-time expenditure after a nearby section previously had the shoulders widened.
