Elk Fork road closing early due to damage

The Shoshone National Forest has closed the Elk Fork Road, Forest Service Road 424, ahead of the seasonal closure due to resource damage. Forest Service Road 424, in the corridor of the North Fork of the Shoshone River, has a seasonal closure that normally begins on January 1st; however, the Shoshone National Forest had to close the road early this year. Due to warmer temperatures this fall, a series of deep ruts were created causing concern for damage to the resource and the safety of those utilizing the road. #reboot #news
