Sheriff's Office urges drivers to use W. Denton detour route

The Lancaster County Sheriff says his office has received complaints about drivers not using the detour.

On March 13, 2013, West Denton Road officially closed for reconstruction from S. Folsom to S.W. 70th streets. The official detour is U.S. Hwy 77 north to Van Dorn Street. Van Dorn Street west to S.W. 84th Street. S.W. 84th Street south to West Denton Road.

Only local residents will be allowed around the barricades, through the construction area to reach their residences.

The detour route was chosen as the official detour because it is the nearest paved roadway that can accommodate the traffic W. Denton Road normally carries. Motorists who do chose gravel roadways as an alternative put themselves at greater risk of accidents. The heavier traffic on gravel roadways creates more dust, wears down the road surface and creates more congestion at stop signs.

Motorists are urged to use the designated detours for their safety.

If you have any questions, contact the Lancaster County Engineer's Office 402 441-7681
