Spring landslide damages a portion of Blind Bull Road

September 9, 2017
The Greys River Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest will temporarily close the Blind Bull road (Forest Service Road 10123) at mile marker 2 the week of September 5 due to a landslide.
Between June 4 and 6, 2017 a large landslide took out a portion of the Blind Bull road making it impassable. An emergency closure was put in place while an assessment of the damage was completed. Initially an emergency repair was being considered, however after multiple assessments completed by Forest Engineers and partner entities, the landslide was determined to be highly unstable.
"Safety is a major concern and the Forest Service will reassess the stability of the area next year with hopes to repair the road," said Justin Laycock, Greys River District Ranger. The closure point on the road at mile-2 was selected as the best and safest place to turn around or park a vehicle.
The Blind Bull road serves as important access to the public during summer and winter months. "Public access is an important aspect of the Forest Service mission and we will continue with efforts to restore this access as conditions allow," said Laycock.
