Manastash Road Culvert Replacement
Cle Elum -The long awaited replacement of a culvert on Forest Service Road 3100, Manastash at Buck Meadows will begin on Monday September 16, 2013. The culvert was destroyed by floodwaters in May of 2011.
The project, originally slated for August, was delayed by area closures associated with the Manastash Ridge Fire, suppression activities and fire traffic.
Construction is expected to take up to two weeks, during which time the road will be closed to through traffic. There is no viable detour around this closure suitable for passenger vehicles. Those in narrow wheel base vehicles, such as jeeps, and those on motorcycles can bypass the construction via trail 4W311; a steep, difficult, double track trail that connects Riders Camp on FS 3100 to FS Road 3111 north east of Buck Meadows.
For more information, call the Cle Elum Ranger Station at 509 852 1100.
