The ANF's Marienville RD has temporarily closed approximately 5-1/2 miles of Forest Service Road 131 between State Road 3002 north to the Forest Service Road 228 intersection. The road was closed because of concerns that a slump in the road may expand following the recent heavy rains.
Forest Service Road 131 will also be closed to dispersed camping, but the Loleta Campground is open. Engineering crews are monitoring the road and will begin repairs as quickly as possible.
