Superior National Forest lifts temporary road closure
Dec 12, 2017 03:25PM ● Published by Editor
Forest managers closed this and some other sections of forest roads Nov. 29 due to the thick layer of ice that created an extreme hazard for traffic.
While road conditions have improved in some areas, all motorists are urged to continue to use care when driving on forest roads and to be aware that many forest roads are not plowed.
The temporary closure is still in effect for a 5-mile portion of the Tomahawk Road (Forest Road 377) on the Kawishiwi Ranger District, from Highway 1 east to Forest Road 381 in Lake County.
A map of the closure is posted on the Superior National Forest website at fs.usda.gov/alerts/superior/alerts-notices/?aid=44436.
