(UNDATED) - Two roads in the northern section of the Hoosier National Forest are getting upgrades this summer.
Hunter Creek Road has re-opened after two months of work so visitors to the Hoosier National Forest no longer need to make the long detour around.
A new bridge spans Hunters Creek to replace two culvert pipes.
The new structure allows aquatic organisms to move up and down the stream more easily.
The new passage also will move water and debris better during high water.
South Houston road in Brown County or County Road 650 West in Jackson County was closed on Monday to replace a bridge approximately 0.2 mile north of the Brown/Jackson County line.
The road should reopen on September 9th depending on weather.
