  • Adams Fork Bridge Closed (FR 5601)

    The Adams Fork Bridge on FR 5601 at MP 2.0 on the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District is CLOSED because it is beyond its service life, was damaged in flooding in 2015, and has suffered ongoing scouring of the foundation since that time.  Recent inspections show it as only able to support its own weight.  For public safety, the bridge has been closed pending repairs, effective immediately.   The bridge is closed to all traffic.  Signing and physical barriers will be placed as soon as possible. 

    FR 5601 provides access to the Ollalie Lake/Takhlakh Lake area and developed sites and trailheads along FR2329.  Alternative and more convenient access to those areas from the north is available via Forest Road 23 directly to FR2329 (south end) and via FR 23/21/56/5603 to FR 2329 (middle).  For additional information, please call the Cowlitz Valley Ranger District at 360-497-1100.
