Road Closure On Forest Service Road 2361
Olympia, WA, June 30, 2015 – A temporary closure will be implemented on Forest Service Road 2361 beginning on July 16, 2015. The road is located on Olympic National Forest’s Hood Canal Ranger District, in the Church Creek area. During this closure, the Church Creek Trailhead and the South Fork Skokomish Trailhead will both be inaccessible.
This closure is necessary to ensure public safety while a new pipe culvert is installed. The closure will be from milepost 3.0 to 3.5. The existing culvert is too small. The new, improved culvert pipe will meet the 100 year flow standard, and this action will also improve safety on the road.
Forest Service Road 2361 will open as soon as the work is completed, but it is expected to remain closed for approximately 45 days. Please call Guadalupe Cisneros at Olympic National Forest if you have any questions or concerns about this project at (360) 956-2353.
