Johnsburg Road detour opens next week

JOHNSBURG – Eastbound traffic on Johnsburg Road will be diverted starting Tuesday, weather permitting, according to a news release.

Westbound traffic will continue to travel along Johnsburg Road between Chapel Hill Road and Cherokee Drive, but eastbound traffic will be rerouted along Route 31 to Route 120 to Chapel Hill Road.

A map showing the detour route is available at the project website,

The plan is to widen the road to three lanes – one in each direction and a center lane for turning. Traffic signals will be installed at Riverside Drive and Spring Grove Road.

The second phase will include installation of a roundabout where Johnsburg Road, St. Johns Avenue and Chapel Hill Road meet.
