MERIDIAN -- Franklin Road between Ten Mile Road and Linder Road in Meridian will close early Saturday morning, due to a road-widening project that began in February.

Drivers will be detoured to Pine Avenue, but drivers heading east are reminded that construction is still going on at the intersections of Meridian Road and Cherry Lane, and Main Street and Fairview Avenue. Delays are likely on the alternate route of Pine Street between Linder Road and Main Street.

Businesses and homes within the closure will remain accessible.

The road will re-open before the Monday morning commute.

The Franklin Road widening project is expected to be finished by the end of September.
