The Flathead National Forest is installing new culverts, drain dips, and performing surface milling along Forest System Road (FSR) 9790, known as Taylor Creek Road. The road junction is located at mile post 5.5 of Upper Whitefish Lake Road. To provide for safety during the work, FSR 9790 will be intermittently closed with opportunities to bypass work at 2 hour intervals.
The delays will begin July 5, and will be in effect until the work is complete, which is estimated to be July 15. The work is funded to aid the Montana’s Forest in Focus projects, and will protect streams in the area from road sediments as required by water quality Best Management Practices in Montana Forests.
