  • Williams River Road Open, Caution Advised

    Williams River Road (Forest Road 86) on the Gauley Ranger District in Monongahela National Forest is open for motor vehicle use, with certain safety measures in place. Two narrow sections of the road have single-lane restrictions. These two sections are close together, about 7 miles upstream and east of the community of Dyer, just west of the Three Forks Bridge. Use caution when traveling this area and obey posted speed limits. Forest staff will regularly monitor road conditions. If safety issues arise the road may again be temporarily closed for evaluation and repair. Non-motorized use of the road, such as walking, bicycling, and horseback riding, is permitted as usual.
