Proposed roads

Road deactivation

Moffat-Lake-Spokin FSR 7968.06
This route has been deactivated. ATV use only. Barricades have been placed at the point of entry, the road has been cross-ditched and the bridge at 1.5 km across Borland Creek has been removed.

Harvey’s Creek Forest Service Road FSR 9600
This road has been permanently deactivated from 15 km to its terminus at 16.3 km. An additional deactivation from 11 km to 15 km will also take place this year (2019). The remaining road (0 to 11 km) will be reclassified as a wilderness road. Wilderness roads receive a level of maintenance that generally precludes the authorization of industrial use permits.
