Mountain Loop Road (FSR 39) Reconstruction
It was a productive week for Tidewater Contractors and the Forest Service along
the 13 mile stretch of the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road (FSR 39) that is currently
under reconstruction. The contractor was busy clearing trees along the roadside,
putting up signs, and placing barriers in preparation for more work to come.
Two gates have been installed and are in place for the remainder of the project.
One gate is located at the south end of the project area across the 39 Rd at the
junction of the 39 Rd and HWY 86. A second gate is located across the 39 Rd near
the Junction of the 39 Rd and FSR 66, the Duck Creek Rd detour route.
Both gates are locked, however project lead, Randy Strohm 541-519-4192, will be
piloting hunters through the construction zone at 10 am and 2pm this Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, November 8-10 to accommodate for the second Bull Elk
The gates will be unlocked and left open this winter when construction is
complete for the season and the 39 Rd becomes a winter snowmobile route. The
Wallowa-Whitman will send out an update when this occurs.
Construction signs are in place at several key locations highlighting the "Road
Work Ahead". Signs are currently located near Highway 350 (Little Sheep Creek)
at the north end of the 39 Rd, just outside of the cities of Imnaha and Halfway,
and leading up to the construction zone from the north and south ends.
Temporary signs have also been installed in popular hunting and recreation areas
outside of Halfway and at the southern entrance of the detour route along Duck
Creek Road. An expanded sign plan is being considered for next spring and
