WILLOWS, Calif; April 5, 2017 – Mendocino National Forest employees continue to inventory and evaluate roads and damage across the forest as weather and conditions permit. Forest visitors need to be aware that there may be hazards that have not been identified yet as some areas are unsafe for employees to enter.

Several road closures are in effect and additional closures may need to be issued. Employees are noticing that travelers are going around road barriers and even trying to remove debris. Ann Carlson, Mendocino Forest Supervisor, cautions, “Ignoring road barriers and trying to remove debris is dangerous for travelers and our employees. There may be more problems beyond the visible damage at the road barrier and removing debris may generate more movement on hillsides.” Carlson adds, “Please be alert and adhere to all road barriers.”

As the snow continues to recede, many hazards may exist: unstable roads due to saturated soil, blocked roads from downed trees, plugged culverts, deep ruts and running water. The local weather forecast shows showers and windy conditions likely over the next few days.

Visitors are encouraged to call ahead before traveling to the Forest. Please check the forest website for Alerts and Notices: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/mendocino/alerts-notices
