GADOT crews cut out the remaining asphalt so the crew can access the location to replace the drain pipe.  Very little digging was required according to Sheriff Schrader, “this was mostly washed out.”

“It’s taking a little longer than we’d all like (including them) but it’s a mess,” Schrader said.  With the rain forecasted over the next few days the work will extend longer than anticipated. 

Per GADOT continue to use the detour listed below:
