USE CAUTION ON PIKE NATIONAL FOREST ROADS DAMAGED BY FLOODING

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 20, 2013 – As a result of recent heavy storm events and saturated soils, many U.S. Forest Service (USFS) roads on the Pike National Forest in El Paso County sustained significant damage and are temporarily closed. Old Stage Road and Gold Camp Road are inaccessible, as well as other portions of the Ranger District.

Forest managers continue to remind the public that it is a lengthy process to identify and repair all of the damage incurred. According to Ranger Al Hahn, “We don’t recommended travel on national forest roads at night or during rainstorms. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we assess damages, prioritize repair work and begin restoring the infrastructure.”

Field crews are currently assessing damage as conditions allow and mobilizing efforts toward full access. Hahn said. “Our priority is public and employee safety. Please use caution in all rain affected areas and be aware that repairs will take a considerable amount of time.”

The public should use extreme caution when traveling on national forest roads and trails. Promptly report flood damage to the Pikes Peak District Office (719-636-1602). Or, email us at fs.usda.gov/goto/psicc/and click on “Contact Us” to leave a detailed message.
