Tyler Road Culvert Work to Create Detour

A culvert replacement will cause detoured traffic between St. Joseph County and Marshall County beginning on Monday.

Marshall County Highway Administrator Laurie Baker told the commissioners this week that St. Joseph County highway workers would like to use three roads in Marshall County as a detour while the culvert issues are addressed. Lilac Road, King Road, and First Road will be utilized as a route around the construction.

Commissioner Kurt Garner noted that the area doesn’t carry much traffic so the proposed detour should not be an issue.

The commissioners unanimously approved the request. The culvert work is expected to be complete on Friday, May 26.
