MODOT is recommending that drivers taking highway 135 north of Laurie find an alternate route over the next few weeks.

Officials say they will be closing one lane of the roadway for roadside maintenance from 7:30AM through 3PM daily until Friday December 17th.

Flaggers will be directing traffic but MODOT says if you can take an alternative route, that would be a better option.
