Temporary Forest Service Road Closure

Reconstruction work on Forest Service road 53, Eckman Creek, one mile east of Waldport off Highway 34, will temporarily close to all traffic from now through September 15th. Alternate access can be achieved by Forest Service road 3462 Canal Creek, which is seven miles east on Highway 34. The work will involve reconstruction of an Eckman Creek tributary culvert.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause travelers. This project will facilitate passage of aquatic organisms, as well as ensure road fill stability and forest access for years to come,” said Michele Jones, Central Coast Ranger District and Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area District Ranger.
