FAIRFIELD RANGER DISTRICT REPORTS ROAD CLOSURE DUE TO WASHOUT
Due to a strong rainstorm that went through the area last night, Forest Road #227, commonly known as the ‘Featherville - Ketchum Road’ on the Fairfield Ranger District has washed out and is impassable. It is closed from Big Hole to Skeleton Creek.
This closure will prohibit travel from Big Smoky to Featherville. Signs have been posted at the Forest boundary on the west side of the Fairfield Ranger District and at the Big Smoky Junction on the east side.
Due to the severity of the washout it may take some time to repair. Employees from the Fairfield Ranger District are on site today and a team of experts will be evaluating the road and assessing the damage. As soon as additional information about the damage and repair to the road is known, an update will be provided.
CONTACT: Carol Brown, Public Affairs Officer
At this point we haven't seen an update. We suggest you call Carol to see if bicyclists can walk around the washout and/or provide a detour around it.
