The closure is to facilitate the permanently raising of a section of the road, which along with a large area of surrounding land, was submerged under six feet water for a number of months after water levels on the nearby turlough rose to historic levels. The Road was re-opened once Roscommon County Council were able to temporarily raise the level of the road

The proposed closure will come into effect on Monday September 19th at 8am and is scheduled to remain closed until 5pm on Friday October 28th.

The following alternative routes will be in place:

Traffic wishing to travel north on the R367 are being advised to divert in Ballintubber via the R367 to the N60 to Ballymoe, to take the N60 to Castlerea and to then take the R377 to Castleplunkett.

Traffic wishing to travel south on the R367 shall divert in Castleplunkett via the R377 to Castlerea, N60 to Ballymoe, N60 to the R367 and the R367 to Ballintubber.

Anyone wishing to object to the proposed closures can make a submission to Eugene Dwyer, Head of Roads & Transportation at Roscommon County Council c/o Áras an Chontae, Roscommon town by 5pm on Thursday September 1st.
