Quinault Area Road Closures

Olympia, WA—An intermittent road closure has been extended on the Pacific Ranger District of the Olympic National Forest. This closure is necessary to ensure public safety during timber harvest operations on the Dum T timber sale. Specifically, the closure will occur in these areas:
Forest Service Road 2280—Mile Post 0.0 to 1.5
Forest Service Road 2220—Mile Post 4.0 to 6.0

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. This road closure will be lifted as soon as timber harvesting is complete and the machinery has been removed from the area, which should be sometime around March 1, 2014.
