Work on a county radio tower replacement near the Dixie Butte lookout will force a temporary intermittent closure of Forest Road 2610.

According to Malheur National Forest officials, the last mile of the road will be closed for safety reasons for one month, with work scheduled to begin July 27. The narrow road has a steep side slope and no areas for safe turnarounds prior to the lookout.

Official forest road closure orders are online at www.fs.usda.gov/malheur.
