Front Street in Farmington reopened at the end of the day Wednesday following the replacement of a large culvert and new drainage system. The road was closed to through traffic since late August. It was expected to be closed the month of September, but weather and the paving schedule delayed the opening. Businesses could be accessed during the construction. (Donna M. Perry/Sun Journal)
