With several culvert installation projects and one retaining wall installation scheduled to begin next week, Olympic National Forest staff has announced the closure of Forest Road 30 near Forks.

Road 30 will be closed to public travel from Monday through Sept. 30 while the repairs are underway. This road does not access campgrounds, trailheads or other recreation facilities.

But it could impact access for the upcoming bear hunting season and mushroom pickers going out in the next two months,

Construction operations and the related closure will occur from milepost 3.5 to milepost 7.5, said a forest news release. Culvert installation replaces old pipe with culverts large enough for aquatic organism passage, and other culverts to improve road safety.
