Construction on the culvert located on Kewin Mill Road at Five Mile Creek continues to progress.

Several factors influence the timing of temporary closures during construction. The type of work, weather, and construction delays are considered when deciding if the road will be closed. At this time, any closures to Kewin Mill Road at Five Mile Creek could occur daily between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. and between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. However, the contractor has accommodated the traveling public and allowed them to pass  during these closure periods.
