SW Dober Road, between Iowa Hill and Riedweg roads, will close Sept. 21-Oct. 11 for culvert installation.

The project, originally scheduled to begin Sept. 14, was delayed due to wildfire and poor air quality causing unsafe conditions for crews.

The existing bridge will be replaced with a reinforced concrete box culvert of similar size. The box culvert is designed to meet fish passage requirements.
