From 8 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m., fire and NDOT crews will be burning off heavy fuels alongside the road in an effort to prevent a possible wildfire in the future.

The burn area will be on SR-447 between Dead Ox at Mile Marker 10 and Little Nixon Road at Mile Marker 12.


Drivers should expect delays as traffic may have to be stopped periodically for safety. If possible, plan to use an alternate route to avoid this area.
