Bear Camp Road to be Temporarily Closed Monday; Detour Available
Seven and a half miles of Bear Camp Road will be temporarily closed Monday through October 7th while a five foot in diameter culvert is replaced.
A detour will be established on Burnt Ridge Road with signs marking the route. The detour will add about five minutes to travel time.
Gates will be closed on Bear Camp Road from milepost 29 through 36.5 to allow for heavy equipment movement and turnaround locations.
Once the culvert is installed the road will be re-opened but traffic delays of up to 15 minutes should be expected until the project is completely finished October 25th.
Bear Camp Road provides the shortest route between Grants Pass and Gold Beach over the Siskiyou Mountains. It is not maintained for winter travel from November 5th through May 31st.
