Glacier Creek Road Closed to All Traffic

AAI just received the following email from Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest:

Effective immediately and through to Aug 28. FSR 39, Glacier Creek Road is closed to all public access (including foot and bike traffic) from MP 1.0 to MP 4.0 and 500' each side of FSR 39 through this section.

Recent public contacts have interrupted the road repair work. The work that is being done is not suitable or safe for any publics to be interfacing with this type of road construction work. The Contractor is responsible for erecting some type of signage informing folks that the road is closed to all publics at this time.

The Contractor does not work on Fri, Sat or Sun but the closure remains in effect until lifted. Numerous piles of rock riprap that is loose and can cause injuries are located in the roadway and negotiating them is not safe even if the equipment is not working.

The Glacier Creek Road is the road used to access the Coleman-Deming Glacier and the North Ridge on Mount Baker.
