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 WatSit Timber Sale. Specifically, the closure will occur in the area:

Forest Service Road 2900- Mile Post 19.9 to 22.0

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 on the roadway.

The closure may be in effect at irregular intervals from Monday through Friday only. During the week the road may close 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 February 28, 2017. The road will remain open on weekends.

For additional information, please contact the Pacific Ranger District office in Forks at (360) 374-6552.
