Prior damage to street motivates redirect

Bethany’s village council has come forward with a new traffic route for grain semis during this year’s harvest in an attempt to maintain roadway conditions inside of town.
Officials are urging farmers to familiarize themselves with the new route and adhere to it for their benefit and to help the community as a whole.
In recent years, Robinson Street, the main roadway access to Bethany’s grain elevators, has seen extensive damage from increased semi traffic, particularly semis that line up while waiting to unload their crops.
