According to a notice released at 2 p.m. Monday, Aug. 27, beginning immediately, Forest Service Road (FSR) 46 (Welamotkin Road) will be closed from Thomason Meadow Guard Station north to the junction of FSR 4625.

A detour is available from the FSR 46 by traveling north on the FSR 4690, turn right and travel north on FSR 4625 which returns back to the FSR 46.

The closure is needed for public safety due to a large burnout operation being conducted along the FSR 46 in an effort to suppress the Cache Creek Fire which started August 20, 2012, by lightning in the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area (NRA).
