Culvert fails, alters traffic on Shoshone forest road

Jun 30, 2014 - From staff reports

Officials encourage Brooks Lake visitors to call the Wind River District Office to obtain information on the status of the road.

A culvert located on the Brooks Lake Road recently was found to be failing. As a result, there is an active slump eroding the shoulder of this road on the Wind River Ranger District of the Shoshone National Forest.

The road currently is passable to one-way traffic.

The location of the failing culvert is roughly two-and-a-half miles from the junction with U.S. Highway 26-287. If the slump continues to grow, it may result in the closing of the road.

The Shoshone National Forest is in the process of arranging for the culvert to be replaced.

Those wishing to travel the road to Brooks Lake are encouraged to call the Wind River District Office at 455-2466 to obtain the latest information on the status of the road.

The Shoshone National Forest has 2.4 million acres of diverse terrain and a mission to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the forest.
