Staff report

GOLDEN POND - Land Between The Lakes has re-opened Forest Service Roads 130, 108 and 134 to the public following temporary maintenance closures.

The new bridge is 64 feet long, 16 feet wide and constructed of precast structural slabs.

FHWA also finished replacing large culverts on FS Road 108 to Demumbers Bay and FS Road 134 to Energy Lake.
