 Chickakee Road will be closed at the pipes for two or three weeks while longer and wider pipes are installed.

Chickakee Road will be closed at the pipes starting Tuesday morning. The Winston County Road Department will intall two new pipes. The 65-foot pipes will allow for wider shoulders with much less slope. County Commissioner David Cummings said the pipes cost approximately $36,000 and Haleyville helped with $10,000 for the project.

Historically the road at the pipes has been repaired two or three times a year. "This will eliminate much of our maintenance," Cummings said. "We're spending money to save money," he added.

The road will be closed anywhere from two to three weeks, depending on the weather.
