JOHN DAY - Forest Road 47, the route from Burns to Yellowjacket Lake, will be closed to traffic Sept. 23 through mid-October, so that a large culvert replacement can take place.

Visitors will be able to access the lake using established detour routes on Forest Roads 43, 4310 and 4780, said Emigrant Creek Ranger District officials.

Detour signs are posted along the detour route, and maps are available at the Emigrant Creek District Office front desk.

The start and finish dates are tentative and are subject to change due to weather or construction delays.

For updates please call the Emigrant Creek Ranger District office at 541-573-4300.
