Christian County - The southbound lanes of US 51 near Assumption opened up this past Friday, and Christian County Sheriff, Bruce Kettelkamp is urging people to be careful.
Kettelkamp said drivers will still experience lane closures on both sides through October, in order to finish the project. Traffic entering from side roads will need to be cautious and follow the new traffic control devices at the divided highway.
The project is about 1.5 miles north of Assumption to 1.4 miles south of Assumption in Christian County.
