The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests' Grand Valley Ranger District will resume work on a road improvement project for the Grand Mesa National Forests' Flowing Park Road (NFSR #109), located southwest of Highway 65. Project work is scheduled to begin Monday of this week and will consist of crushing operations that will improve the road bed.
During crushing operations the road will be closed Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with the road being open to public access nightly and on the weekends. Crushing operations are expected to last until Thursday, Sept. 6.
The public is advised to be cautious as backhoes and excavators will be operating in the area during work hours, and parked along the road during off-hours greatly narrowing the drivable surface of the road. The GMUG acknowledges and appreciates the public's understanding and patience during this period.
