Road work near Smith’s Creek to cause detours

A repaving project will close several sections of roadway in the Smith’s Creek area starting today. According to the St. Clair County Road Commission, paved portions of Mayer, Yager, and Burns Roads will be reconstructed in Kimball and St. Clair Townships. The nearly $450,000 project is being funded fully by the St. Clair County Road Commission and is expected to be completed by next month. Mayer between Frith and Yager, Yager between Mayer and Burns, Burns between Yager and Main Street, and Main Street between Burns and Henry will be close to through traffic for the duration of the project.
