Just install the OTA and reroot afterwards.The superSU Pro app in Play has a survival mode to keep root after installing an OTA. Look here also http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2523217.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Most likely the OTA will fail due to modified reboot menu Other than that there are ways to restore root.
