Concord Township announced that the intersection of Concord and Mattson Roads is now a four-way stop intersection. Stop signs on Concord Road were recently installed. Motorists are advised to use caution.

Crews will be working weekdays from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Burnt Mill Road in Kennett Township is closed and detoured indefinitely between Norway and Spring Mill roads while crews prepare for repairs to a bridge that collapsed on April 24.
