Quinault Area Road Closure

Olympia, WA—An intermittent road closure has been implemented on the Pacific Ranger District of the Olympic National Forest. This closure is necessary to ensure public safety during timber harvest operations on the Hum T timber sale. Specifically, the closure will occur in this area:
Forest Service Road 2204 –Mile Post 3.0 to 7.0

The road is narrow with limited turn around areas. There will not be sufficient room for safe public access once the timber purchaser positions heavy machinery and log decks in the road prism.

The closure may be in effect at irregular intervals from Monday through Friday only. The road will remain open on weekends. During the week the road may be closed entirely, it may be blocked for up to an hour at a time, or it may be open, depending on the purchaser’s activities. This road closure will be lifted as soon as timber harvesting is complete and the purchaser’s machinery has been removed from the area, which should be sometime around June 1, 2014.
