Forest Service Road 1230 maintenance project, closure on Sisters Ranger District postponed

U.S. Forest Service

(Update: Road project postponed)

SISTERS, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Maintenance work on Forest Service Road 1230 and the associated temporary closure that was announced Friday has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts, Sisters Ranger District officials said Monday.

The road provides access to Jack Lake Trailhead, Glacier View Trail #4011, Canyon Creek Trail #4010, and Old Summit Trail #4014 on the Sisters Ranger District.

The project has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts, officials said. The ranger district expects to complete the work later this month.

Officials said the maintenance project will improve road safety. The current chip seal is very worn and there are large potholes on the road surface. Road improvement work will include removal of one mile of chip seal on the road surface. Heavy equipment will pulverize the chip seal and covert it to gravel which will be used as the new road surface.

For more information, please contact the Sisters Ranger District at (541) 549-7700.

When the closure, expected to take three days, happens, Forest Service Road 1230 will be closed from its junction with FSR 200 to its junction with FSR 1234 to allow for heavy equipment to operate safely. Access to Jack Creek Campground will not be affected. Road closure signs will be posted on the road and in the area.

Forest Service Roads 12 and 1260 provide a detour to Jack Lake Trailhead around the temporary closure. Signage indicating the detour route will be posted on FSR 12 and FSR 1260 during the closure.
