Temporary Road Closure - North Elk Ranch.

Closed to all vehicular traffic. The area to be closed: from the junction of Highway 89/191 and Elk Ranch Road (43.830075 N, -110.512804 W) to the first cattle guard/gate on Uhl Hill Rd south from Elk Ranch (43.822056 N, -110.498693 W). Note: The northern portion of Elk Ranch flats is still accessible to the public by vehicle through the Wolff Ranch Rd.

This closure is necessary to protect integrity of this creek crossing while protecting visitors from getting their vehicles stuck here. Beavers have built a dam immediately upstream of the creek crossing and altered the flow of this creek along the western portion of the crossing. This crossing is critical to efficient access to irrigation infrastructure by the irrigation crew. With increased vehicle traffic, this could hasten the degradation of the crossing that would impact irrigation operations and require road reconstruction and/or additional maintenance. The beaver dam is one of three dams in the upstream portion of this spring-fed reach. SRM staff will implement passive monitoring via a remote camera to determine whether beavers are actively tending the dam that is diverting this creek’s flow; pending the results of that monitoring, level of beaver activity, and state of the crossing, SRM may recommend alternative approaches to protect this road if necessary
