A detour will be in place all week on part of Shawnee Road near Berrien Springs while some repairs are made to a failed catch basin. The Berrien County Road Commission’s Brian Berndt tells WSJM News crews noticed the problem last week.
“This structure that collects storm water, the back side of it has fallen apart,” Berndt said. “So we’re going to repair that. In order to do that work, we’re going to have to close the road to get equipment in and take the guardrail down to do it.”
Shawnee Road is now closed between Hills and Lauer Roads. A detour is posted. The $17,000 project is expected to wrap up this Friday.
