Canadian National (CN) railroad will close a section of Andersonville Road between Edgar and Farley roads in Springfield Township through Thursday, September 15, for railroad crossing repair work.
The detour for truck traffic during the closure is Dixie Hwy (US-24) to Davisburg Road back to Andersonville Road and vice versa. All other traffic is advised to use Edgar Road to Forester Road to Farley Road back to Andersonville Road and vice versa.
The Ace Hardware store at 6669 Dixie Highway is set to reopen in October.
“This location is incredibly convenient for our customers, so when it fell into decline and closed under the prior ownership – we jumped at the opportunity to reopen the store in a community that we live in and love,” said owners Jason and Melanie Haley. “We’re excited to be part of the community, and we look forward to making a positive impact for many years to come.”
The 15,000-square-foot store, located in the Clarkston Oaks shopping center next to Kroger, will have new décor and updated gift marketplace in addition to paint, lawn and garden, and hardware.
