DUBOIS, Wyo., September 10, 2018 – The Shoshone National Forest will be closing the Warm Springs Bridge, which is located on the southeastern side of Forest Service Road 532 (FSR 532), for approximately one month starting September 12, 2018. A new bridge will be installed between September 12 and October 12.

During the closure of the bridge, visitors wishing to access this area of the Forest may still do so via the northwestern end of FSR 532. A low-water ford will be constructed around the bridge replacement project between September 17 and September 19. After the ford is constructed, Warm Springs Creek may still be crossed by UTVs, ATVs, and 4-wheel drive vehicles only starting September 20. No trailers of any kind, to include 5th wheels, will be allowed through this area.
