Contractors will soon begin road work on Elden Lookout Road (Forest Road 557) [map of Elden Lookout Road]. The resurfacing work is anticipated to begin May 18, 2015, and could last into the summer, as conditions allow.
Elden Lookout Road is currently open to the public but will be closed once resurfacing work begins, and will remain closed until the work is completed. Recreationists should be aware that heavy equipment will be in the area during this time. Related construction traffic will also affect Elden Springs Road (FR 556) and Schultz Pass Road (FR 420), as material for the resurfacing will be hauled from McCormick Pit in the Cinder Hills area to Elden Lookout Road.
