WOODINVILLE, Wash. (AP) - The Washington state Transportation Department says work crews will need to close a lane of Highway 9 in the northeast Seattle suburb of Woodinville for two days to remove a beaver dam.

The Seattle Times reports (https://is.gd/W9bdiO ) the agency says the work will free water to flow through an 80-foot-long culvert that’s currently blocked. If the dam were allowed to remain, transportation officials say soil could be scoured away beneath the highway.

Traffic delays on the four-lane road are expected in the afternoon. The repairs will begin Thursday morning and could last until Friday evening.
