The Mercer County Highway Department has scheduled work to be completed on a 4 mile section of Joy Road from the north city limits of Joy north to 110th Street. The proposed work requires this section of highway be closed to thru traffic during the process of road rehabilitation and curing. Please note that the road will be open to local residents and emergency vehicles. We anticipate the road closure starting the week of July 19th through August 13th. It is critical during the 5 day cement curing period that large trucks and heavy farm equipment refrain from using this section of roadway to allow the pavement to attain maximum strength. We apologize for the inconveniences caused by this road and ask for the public's patience during this important construction activity.
