Thinning to Cause Delays
July 19, 2007
A thinning project designed to maintain large legacy trees and remove dead hazard trees will cause traffic delays for the next month on Highway 62, which provides access to Crater Lake National Park from the southwest. The work is being done to protect large sugar pines from Milepost 45 to Milepost 57 between the Prospect Ranger Station and Union Creek, which has been designated as a Special Interest Area because of its large trees. The work is about 50 miles northeast of Medford and about 20 miles southwest of Crater Lake National Park. For information contact Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest at (541) 858-2211. Work will continue through mid-August.
