Sewer work will close road in Woolmarket for a month

Parts of Old Highway 67 in Woolmarket will be closed at 9 a.m. Monday to install the final sewer lines in a year-long, $4.8 million project.

The work is expected to be complete Dec. 30.

The road will be closed for three-quarters of a mile, from near the Woolmarket intersection to Wren Place, with only emergency vehicles and residents in the immediate area allowed access.

Drivers should use Woolmarket Road and Shriners Boulevard and signs will mark the detour routes.

When the Woolmarket Plantation sewer project is complete next month, 27,000 feet of sewer lines will be installed.
