Staff with the Tiller Ranger District, which is part of the Umpqua National Forest, is closing Road 3230 at mile marker 7.09 starting on Thursday July 2nd.

Mark Turney of the Umpqua National Forest, said this will also close the adjoining road 3220 at the junction of the two roads, Turney said the closure is necessary to remove and replace a 10        -foot diameter steel culvert, which is designed to provide aquatic species passage and be able to pass large debris.

A release said the contractor has been working since the first week of June preparing for the major excavation.  The project is expected to continue through mid-August.

The release said no traffic will be allowed through the project site while work is taking place. Turney said the best way around the work site is via road 3201, also known as Diamond Rock Road.
