Benton city officials have released information about street changes related to ongoing improvements being made to Lower Military Road.
On Friday, Jan. 11, Military Road traffic between Smithers Drive and Northshore Drive will be shifted over onto new lanes, Mayor David Mattingly announced.
The old road will be closed to through traffic at this time.
Access to the old roadway for businesses and their customers may be obtained at the Smithers or Northshore intersections, based on the business location, he said.

The entrance to Lincoln Square from Military will be closed also.
The traffic on Lincoln Road will be shifted into two lanes as soon as the Military Road traffic has been moved, the mayor said.
