The Tahuya River Road closure will be extended through 9/12/13. The culvert replacement project has been delayed due to material procurement, but is making great strides toward completion. The new 70' long by 14' wide aluminum culvert will enable fish passage on a tributary of the Tahuya River and remove a chronic environmental deficiency of the roadway and nearby homestead.
