A section of Shiloh Road that has been closed to traffic since November reopened Friday evening.

The 0.15-mile stretch of Shiloh, just north of McFarland Parkway, had been closed as crews installed a concrete box culvert, a structure that will help handle flooding.

Cold weather, rain and several utilities needing to be replaced pushed the project back twice from its original Dec. 31 completion date.

Though the culvert had been planned for some time, heavy rains in September caused a sinkhole and hastened the need for the project, said Tim Allen, assistant director of engineering.

The project has been funded through 1-cent sales tax money.

"This culvert was replaced in the interest of public safety, to help ensure of safe roadway for drivers," said John Cunard, director of engineering.
"We are very appreciative of motorists' patience throughout this project."
