PHILIPSBURG – The Pintler Ranger District is advising travelers in the East Fork Reservoir area that log removal from the “Spillway Salvage” project — in the Spillway Campground — will begin southwest of Philipsburg on Forest Service road 672 (East Fork Road) and road 5154 (Meadow Creek Road).

Travelers to this area are advised to drive cautiously because of log truck traffic and machinery and to expect short delays along road 5154 through December 2014.
