PORCUPINE LANDSLIDE


2018 - Guard station closures - Until further notice due to the Porcupine Landslide, the McCain and Deer Creek guard stations along the Greys River Road near Alpine, Wyoming, will be unavailable for reservations.


2018 - There is a closure (map) for approximately 17-miles of the Greys River Road from the parking lot in Alpine, Wyoming through Porcupline Road. The closure on Forest Service Road 10138 (Greys River Road) is for public safety due to a large landslide which has caused the road to buckle and it isn't passable. Additionally due to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)  modeling of potential flooding risk, should the natural dam created by the slide in the Wild & Scenic eligible Greys River fail, the road would be flooded with a wave of water from a flash flood and debris flow along the corridor downstream of the slide. The threat to infrastructure in the Town of Alpine is low. The threat to Forest Service bridges and the Greys River Road is significant. The model used a scenarios of 55,000 cubic feet per second (cfs). See the Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Porcupine Landslide.
