Road work to begin in Roosevelt County

The Roosevelt County Road Department will begin work on South Roosevelt Road 6 between Industrial Drive and South Roosevelt Road U, during the week that will begin on Monday, according to a news release from the county.

Work should be complete by Aug. 31, weather permitting, the news release stated.

The one mile section of roadway will be closed to through-traffic, as heavy commercial traffic will be rerouted during the construction, according to the news release.

The roadway is being reconstructed through a joint partnership between the county, the city of Portales and local business leaders, according to the news release.

County officials ask drivers to plan accordingly and seek alternate routes, but signs will provide direction.

“We ask all residents to drive slow and watch for heavy equipment and personnel,” the news release stated. I
