Note: The Forest is currently testing new traffic approaches to reduce congestion in the Forest and its impacts on visitor experiences during traditionally high visitation periods of spring break and Easter week in March and April. See "Alert."

Repairs to Forest roads, recreational facilities and trails continue along with efforts to stabilize landslides damaged throughout the Forest.

As road work, debris removal, and power grid repairs continue within and on the way to El Yunque National Forest, visitors can expect traffic delays and temporary closures to facilitate ongoing recovery work. While efforts have been taken to provide for safe travel and recreation use of areas, be mindful that recovery efforts both within and outside the Forest will continue.
