During the closure, drivers are encouraged to follow the detour using New Meridian Road, Falcon Highway, and Highway 24. Local traffic will access Swingline Road from New Meridian Road or Gelbvieh Road during the closure. Business access will remain open.

The road will be closed so crews can complete drainage improvements, asphalt preparation, and paving. The work is part of the US 24 and Meridian Road Improvements Project, which is set to be completed this fall.
