The state Department of Natural Resources is temporarily closing some roads, a campground, and access in two areas due to road work.
The closures are in Capitol State Forest outside of Olympia and near Mount Si in eastern King County.
In Capitol State Forest, Porter Creek Campground and the nearby B-Line Road will be closing Thursday. The closure will continue through part of next year when DNR crews will assess the condition of the area to be reopened.
Porter Creek Campground is a popular area for motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle and mountain bike riding as well as picnicking in the day-use area. Motorized trails leading out of Porter Creek are closed seasonally from Dec. 1 through April 30.
Just east of Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area, the department and the U.S. Forest Service are working on abandoning some old logging roads. One section of road will be converted to a trail. That closure begins Friday.
