McKenzie Pass Update

March 30, 2018 9:52 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Dispatch from Teresa and Wiley: McKenzie Pass is open to the gate at this time....Not far. They are planning to move the plow from Bachelor to the pass next week sometime. There was also warning that due to the fire, be prepared for very stark change scenery, as well as soils that will wash onto the roadway after they get it plowed. Caution was urged with being prepared with wide tires and likely lower speeds descending due to the runoff and likely ongoing road debris. Apparently 50 mph is not encouraged!

So, maybe 2-3 weeks out at this point.
