Brown Creek Road to close for new bridge from Aug. 27 to Sep. 30

Non-local traffic will be directed to take North Fork Road.

Brown Creek Road will be closed from Aug. 4 to Sep. 30 while a bridge is built over Pass Creek. Local residents will be allowed access during the construction.

The crossing over Pass Creek will be replaced with a permanent bridge with deep foundations.

A detour for non-local traffic will be set up to re-route drivers along North Fork Road.

Construction was originally planned to begin on Aug. 4, but high water levels delayed the work.

The crossing originally used a covered corrugated steel culvert, which was washed away in a previous year’s flooding.

Currently, a temporary single-lane forestry bridge is being rented and used to provide access across the creek.
