Forest Service office closes for parking lot work

OKANOGAN - The local U.S. Forest Service office, 1240 S. Second Ave., will be closed Wednesday, Sept. 18, for parking lot repair work.

"Although the public will not be able to enter the office, Forest Service employees will be working in the building and available to answer phone calls," Road Management Engineering Technician Dave Colbert said.

Colbert said the plans are for the contractor to seal coat the asphalt and add lane striping later.

The original plan was to have the office closed Monday and Tuesday, but the forecast of rain delayed the maintenance project.
