Drivers in Ball Ground will need to plan ahead when traveling to downtown businesses next week.

Highway 372, starting at the intersection with Highway 5 and running through downtown Ball Ground, will be closed starting Tuesday for a repair and resurfacing project, according to City Manager Eric Wilmarth. He said the work was scheduled to be completed at around noon Friday.

“Please avoid the area if possible, while using side streets to access our downtown businesses,” Wilmarth said. “We understand this is not a permanent solution, but it will greatly improve the ride while a permanent solution continues to be developed at the state level.”

With the weather forecast predicting clear skies next week, no weather-related delays are expected.
