Stone Creek Road Closure
Recon Construction is scheduled to begin road reclamation activities on the last section of failing blacktop on Stone Creek Road, beginning Thursday June 1st. The roadway shall be closed during this work and for a duration of time, upon completion, to allow the Driving Surface Aggregate to sufficiently dry. The section of Stone Creek Road, between Seeger Road and Coopers Gap Road will be affected. Additionally, Coopers Gap Road will be closed, prior to the intersection with Stone Creek Road. The intersection at Stone Creek Road and Seeger Road, shall remain open for traffic. Closure is estimated at two to three weeks. You will be informed if this schedule changes. State Forest Camp lessees, have been notified of this inconvenience.

Don't Move Firewood

To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
