1.7 Temporary Closures of Forest Service Roads

Where the District Manager determines that a road will be closed temporarily because of safety, sediment delivery, or property issues, place a “road closed” sign at the beginning of the road and install a physical barrier to keep vehicles off the road. Notify potential users of the closure through some form of local advertising. Closures of roads for environmental protection issues such as pressures on wildlife populations are carried out by Ministry of Environment staff through their legislation, and not through the powers provided to FLNR.
