Hamilton, Mont. – The West Fork Ranger District on the Bitterroot National Forest is planning road work this week on the Magruder Corridor Road that may lead to temporary delays for motorists and hunters.
Crews will be conducting surveys to determine the stability of the roadway near mile post 35, approximately one mile west of Selway Road near Magruder Crossing. Crews will be drilling down into the roadbed and large equipment will be parked on the road. Motorists should be prepared for up to two-hour delays while the drilling occurs: starting Wednesday, Oct. 23, and to be completed by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24.
Earlier this summer, crews worked to stabilize several sections of Magruder Road that were deteriorating due to erosion and in danger of washing out. The 101-mile primitive road corridor was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. It allows motorists to drive between the Selway-Bitterroot and Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness Areas.
