Some Seasonal Roads on Stanislaus National Forest May Remain Closed Past April 15

Sonora, CA...Stanislaus National Forest will open seasonal roads beginning April 15, but forest crews need to inspect the roads to ensure there was no damage from this year’s winter storms. Scott Tangenberg, deputy forest supervisor, said workers haven’t been able to inspect many forest roads yet because some are still covered with snow. “Traveling on wet or snowy roads can damage them, which is why we close them during the winter. Our employees follow the same direction that the public does: if the road is closed, only an emergency would allow access,” he added. “Our crews are just now beginning the inspections and we may find some damage that will require repairs before a road is passable.”

Currently, the following high-use roads remain closed until storm damage repairs are completed:

• Groveland Ranger District: Crocker Ridge Road (2S30)

• Calaveras Ranger District: Sourgrass Road (5N14)

• Mi-Wok Ranger District: Buchanan Road (1N01)

• Summit Ranger District: Beardsley Road (4N29), known as Beardsley Day Use Area Road; Hell’s Half Acre Road (5N29); Donnell’s Dam Road (5N09X)

A series of heavy storms during the 2016-2017 winter led to storm damage ranging from mud, rocks and debris slides to roadbed failure on some roads. The forest engineering staff is working with the Federal Highway Administration for funding and expertise to redesign and repair the extensive damage on these roads.

Visitors are encouraged to contact local Ranger District offices for current information on roads and conditions before traveling on the forest.

The Circus could go to Unit 14 of Blue Lake Springs and practice on the outed road that has had storm damage since the Civil War! Our government, county, Federal, are so defunct, let Dan Emerson in there, the problem would be taken care of in a week! Oh, that's right Fish and Game, the Sierra Club, La Raza, the Democratic Party, and the National Lampoon have to okay the project first!
