Forest service roads in the upper Dungeness area will be closed for two or three days, between Sept. 23-26, as staff from Olympic National Forest and the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe work on a restoration project to improve fish habitat within the Dungeness River.
National Forest officials expect closures and traffic delays at Forest Service Road 2870, from the junction of the 2870-050 to the Lower Gray Wolf Trailhead (Mile Post 5.5) — including all roads and areas in between — and the Dungeness River from river mile 13.4 to 16.0.
Access to the upper Dungeness will be maintained from Forest Service Road 2880 and 2870, starting at Mile Post 7.1. The Lower Gray Wolf Trailhead will remain open and can be accessed through the Forest Service Roads 2880 and 2870. The Dungeness Forks Campground will remain closed for the season. All trails outside of the closure area will be open during this time.
Log jams will be constructed in one reach of the Dungeness River on National Forest System lands, about from river mile (RM) 14.0 to 14.6 on the Dungeness River. Log jams will be constructed from trees and materials delivered to the river channel by helicopter.
