Using caution, ATVs and OHVs are able to cross the temporary structure, but no highway vehicles. A culvert that crossed the road washed out, and the county will replace it after high water subsides, tentatively by July 1. CR 51 accesses the White River National Forest to Wyman and Aldrich Lakes and is a popular camping and fishing area.
