If you normally use Helmer Road between I-94 Exit 95 to Columbia Avenue,  you'll need an alternative route on Tuesday June 18th.  The City of Battle Creek Field Services Division says a section of South Helmer Road will be completely closed on Tuesday for a road repair and tree removal, with a detour in place.  Crews must make a road repair from previous utility work, and also remove a large tree in danger of falling.
The Helmer Road closure will be in place between Watkins and Gethings roads, with a detour directing traffic to use Watkins, Gethings, and Stone Jug roads to navigate the area.

The closure will be in place on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Emergency vehicles also will not have access during this time. The Potter’s Grove neighborhood will have access in and out from the south during work hours.
