A portion of Highway 5 between Camdenton and Lebanon was closed yesterday evening as the Missouri Department of Transportation replaced a culvert.

MoDOT area engineer Bob Lynch said the road was closed because as the old culvert was being extracted, the ground surrounding it collapsed.

Crews diverted traffic to Highway 7 until the new culvert was installed, dirt filled in and a new layer of asphalt laid down.
