[ARCHIVED] Norrell Road Closure - Precinct Three

A portion of Norrell Road near Venus will be closed from Jan. 12 to Jan. 20 in order to repair a drainage issue which has plagued that area for several years.

Ellis County Commissioner Heath Sims said, “The purpose of this project is to reinforce two large cross culverts going underneath Norrell Road at Murr Road. We need to increase the stability of the road structure.”

The National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) recently approved a grant to assist the county with this project. Sims added, “We received the grant due to repeated flooding in that area which caused deterioration of the road ditch. This also endangers the roadways as well.”

Sims said he regrets any inconvenience this road closing may cause those living in the area but hopes it will take care of the erosion issues in that area.
