Landslides Force Forest Road Closures:
Two Bureau of Land Management forest roads are now closed by landslides that occurred after recent wet weather. The East Fork Brummet Road (#27-09-21.0) is closed indefinitely at milepost 3.5. This road failure blocks vehicle access to the Doerner Fir trailhead. Those visitors still wishing to hike to the Doerner Fir can park their vehicles on the road before the slide and hike approximately one mile to the trailhead. Forest road engineers are still evaluating the damage and a time frame for repair is not available at this time.
Weaver Road (#28-08-18.0) is closed at milepost 7.5 by a complete road failure. This road suffered additional damage in the 2012 winter storms and is scheduled for repair during the summers of 2014 and 2015. BLM road crews continue to assess roads for damage and updates on forest road conditions are available by calling the Coos Bay District Office at 541-756-0100. Those traveling in the woods should use caution, as downed trees and rocks may be on roadways
Thank you for keeping us safe. ...Linda Newton-Perry
