Road into Tucannon reopens


October 29, 2020

PENDLETON, Ore.—Forest officials on the Pomeroy Ranger District reopened motorized access on Forest Service Roads (FSR) 47, 4712, and a portion of FSR 4713 on Saturday, Oct. 24.

Due to significant flood damage from February 2020, long-term temporary closures along the Tucannon River were put in place until critical repairs could be completed.

This year, work has been ongoing to repair the Little Tucannon bridge, FSR 47, 4620, 4712, and 4713. Culvert replacement work on FSR 4713 continues south of the Panjab Campground. The public will not be able to drive to Panjab or Meadowcreek trailhead until contractors finish final repair activities next week. Ladybug and Panjab campgrounds are open.

The public is reminded that several roads and trails are closed in other areas with significant flood damage. Detailed closure maps and updates on flood repair activities are available on the Umatilla National Forest Facebook page and website, and at any Forest office.
