the forest service built these roads for the timber barons- and has performed scant maintainence afterwards- now the ruling admin wants to decommision them and not allow logging- even of burnt, diseased and dying trees-which of course would improve the roads and our economy- and it could be done by the timber cos, who are much better at building roads than the forest service.but this aint going to happen anytime soon. so get used to it. the forest service is happy the road will be closed all summer- loggers would have it fixed in a week.

This appears to be the section of road upgraded two summers ago (there is a photo on the forest service web site). The forest service did not do the repairs - it was a private company. At any rate, this will be a major inconvenience. The areas served by this road are still accessible but you will need to come in from the Hawkins Bar side. Quite a detour.

There's a limited amount of money out there and since your gawd(s) bush/cheney decided to start a couple of wars and screw up the economy so what little money this country has now goes to the military/industrial complex and there isn't any for domestic use.
Every repubican president since Eisenhower has cut back on infrastructure.
And now with boehner in charge of the purse -strings and the right -wing whackos screaming for budget cuts that road won’t get fixed anytime soon.
