CHELSEA – A section of one of Chelsea’s heavily traveled roads will be closed temporarily as work continues on a project to realign the intersection of Shelby County 47 and Shelby County 39.

Shelby County 47, also called Chelsea Road, will be closed from Shelby County 39 to Liberty Road for about two months, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Residents are urged to avoid the area and use alternate routes of travel.

The road is only closed to through traffic, according to city officials.
