RICHFIELD — Road crews from Piute County plan to begin work to repair a section of Manning Meadows Road, Forest Road 083, located about 2.5 miles south of Manning Meadows Reservoir, beginning either Monday, June 17.
The work is expected to take one to two weeks to complete. The road will be temporarily closed during construction weekdays but will be open over the weekend.
The temporary road closure will be between the intersection with Forest Road 157, Barney Lake, and the intersection with Forest Road 1225, about two miles north of the Dry Creek Guard Station.
The work will consist of reconstructing the failed portions of the road with mechanically stabilized earth walls and improving the site drainage. Earlier this year, the National Forest Service entered into an agreement with Piute County to repair this portion of the road.
