The bridge that spans South Fork Sherman Creek has received damage during the last round of storm events and is unsafe for vehicle traffic. This has effectively closed access to the upper portion of the Barnaby Creek Road from the South Fork Sherman Creek Road to vehicle traffic. This closure applies to motorized traffic. Pedestrian, equestrian and bicycle traffic is still permitted.
The temporary closure went into effect on August 02, 2012 and will remain in effect until repair operations have been completed. Forest officials anticipate that the bridge work will be completed in the summer of 2013.
