Forest Road 209 (Shavers Fork Road) on Monongahela National Forest in Randolph County is closed for a construction projec. The road leads to the Stonecoal Dispersed Camping area along the Shavers Fork of the Cheat River and is expected to be closed until Spring 2024. Foot traffic is welcome when active construction is not taking place. The road is located off Route 250/WV-92 southeast of Huttonsville: https://goo.gl/maps/YcvHuRvZvnS5tkP27.
The project was originally planned for 2024-2025 but is being moved up due to multiple rain events that have increased deterioration of a large culvert on the main road over Red Run. The culvert will be replaced with a 76-foot-long bridge. The project also includes relocating one campsite and re-engineering the road to remove a sharp curve, resulting in easier and safer access for vehicles. The project is funded by the Great American Outdoors Act of 2020. For more information about this project call the Greenbrier Ranger District at (304) 456-3335.
