The following is a press release issued by the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service:
The Mendocino National Forest will temporarily close Forest Road M10 for repairs and paving from Sunday, Oct. 10 to Sunday, Oct. 24. Residents and visitors should prepare to take an alternate route.
The detour from the east side is to take Forest Road M5 south to Forest Road 17N02. The detour from the west side is to take Forest Road 17N02 south to Forest Road M5. Motorists should drive slowly and carefully. The detour loop will add approximately 90 minutes of driving time.
The M10 paving project will begin five miles west of Mill Creek Campground and will progress eastward towards the campground. Part of the repair project will include paving 1.5 miles of unpaved dirt road to provide safer access to the Letts Lake area.
The M10 project is funded by the Great American Outdoors Act to provide better access and safer roads to the public.
Please avoid the project area during the temporary closure and drive with caution while traveling on the forest.
