UPDATE: O Street Closes for Emergency Repairs

The Forest City Street Department has issued a warning to area residents who use O Street. The road is closed from North Best Street to 160th otherwise known as N. Spring Valley Road. The road will be closed for the next few days while crews make emergency repairs to the road. Forest City Streets and Sanitation Director Mike O’Rourke explains.

What is known is that this is a man-made issue which the street crews will assess and fix.

As far as detours are concerned, O’Rourke says the new route is very simple.

The closure is not part of the scheduled construction or for any utility repairs. Street Department officials would not say when the road will open back up. Further details on the closure are forthcoming.
