Wren Road to close Aug. 12-30

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use and Transportation

Wren Road detourNW Wren Road will close from Aug. 12-30, between Glencoe and Leisy roads, for a culvert replacement.

Electricity will be off from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Aug. 20 so a crane can safely lift and move culvert sections around power lines.

The new culvert is larger, allowing for better water management and fish passage. Road shoulders and guardrails will be installed for improved safety.
