Forest Service making road repairs for summertime use

(Maintained Forest Road) – Forest roads provide access to Mark Twain National Forest for Forest Service resource managers and the public.

Mark Twain National Forest engineering technician Dana Sturgeon has several road projects underway on the Potosi/Fredericktown Ranger District.

She provided the following status update for Mark Twain National Forest visitors and neighbors:

• Forest Road 2919 (Howell Lake access road) in Washington County – The portion of the road with severe erosion was graded and a large mudhole was drained.

A contractor brought in oversize rock to fill the mudhole in addition to other areas where unauthorized UTV and ATV traffic had cut away the road bed and created dangerous drop-off areas.

Dana Sturgeon is an engineering technician for Mark Twain National Forest. She is responsible for the Forest road operation and maintenance contracts for the Potosi/Fredericktown Ranger District.

Crushed aggregate was placed on the graded sections of the road. The road will be mowed and limbed before October so that the Missouri Department of Conservation can haul in and stock channel catfish for Howell Lake anglers.
