The Forest Service will temporarily close a quarter mile section of North River Road (Forest Service Road 95) in Augusta County on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2023.
According to the Forest Service, the closure is necessary to repair a section of the road damaged in 2018 by Hurricane Florence. North River Road will be closed to motor vehicles from mile post 6.5 through 6.75.
“Thank you for your patience as we work to improve road conditions and safety on this well- traveled road,” Deputy District Ranger Gregg Slezak said.
The road work is expected to be complete by late November, weather permitting.
Access to Staunton Dam Road, Todd Lake and Elkhorn Lake will remain open during the road repair.
