Culvert replacement on Oak Ridge Rd (east of Axe Tree Service) will happen sometime between Sept 25-Sept 29. The “washboard” corduroy will be removed at the same time.

Since this is a dead-end road, the crew plans to have one lane of the road open for emergency services and states we will have a 2-day notice before they start the project.

We will keep you informed as we get more information.
