Road reconstruction to close 153rd Ave.

Reith-Riley website

153rd Avenue will be closed for reconstruction between Morse and Clay streets starting Tuesday morning. The Lake County Highway Department will have multiple detours in place to guide motorists around certain sections.

Those driving between Morse and State Road 55 are asked to use Morse, 159th, Colfax, Main, Holtz, 169th and State Road 55. Between State Road 55 and Iowa, drivers should use State Road 55, 137th and Iowa. From Iowa to Clay, motorists should take South Grove Road, 157th Avenue and Clay.

Residents living along 153rd will always have access to their homes, but they may see delays of up to 15 minutes for crews to level the roadway. 153rd Avenue is scheduled to reopen July 29, weather permitting.
