From Gifford Pinchot National Forest:

Forest Road 90 will close for two days on Sept. 13 and 14
limiting all travel along FR 90 in and out of the Gifford Pinchot National
Forest along this route. The closure will occur approximately five miles
east of Cougar, Wash.  No detours are available, though all areas will
remain accessible via other routes.

This closure will allow contractors to resurface the roadway over the Swift
Power Canal. Asphalt was removed from this bridge during a one-day closure
in August. This project is meant to maintain traveler safety, reduce impact
to fisheries and water-quality in the Power Canal and to contribute to safe
and effective transportation in and out of the Forest on this heavily used

Please also remember FR 54 is closed until Sept. 23, 2011 to repair a large
slide near this road’s entrance to the west side of the Gifford Pinchot
National Forest.
