Two road closures, including one permanent closure, are scheduled to take place over the next two weeks in Belton.

Auction Barn Road will close Monday for up to 60 days while crews rebuild the portion of the street that connects to Loop 121. Traffic will detour along Old Golf Course Road and Avenue O.

On March 18, the northernmost Shanklin Road connection to Loop 121 will be permanently closed. The closure is due to safety concerns related to growth and increased traffic in the area. The east portion of Shanklin Road that connects to Loop 121 will remain open.
