Road repairs are underway in Lamont County.
After work on repairing a culvert and bridge wasn't finished last fall, Range Road 181, between Highway 45 and Township Road 564, is closed again.
"It had to be delayed because of weather, so this is a continuation of work that was supposed to be done last year," said Heather Atkinson, Lamont County communications officer. "It's a rather big culvert, they really have to take the whole thing out so it takes some time."
Construction is expected to be finished by August 4.
"It's a bridge culvert so there's not going to be any through traffic," added Atkinson.
The county is asking residents to obey all barriers in place.
