Visitor Safety - Browns Camp / Beaver Dam / University Falls DETOUR
The Devil’s Boot timber sale will shortly begin hauling out of Browns Camp through the campground and out Beaver Dam Road.  Part of the sale includes telephone pole harvest so extremely long log loads will be leaving the forest.
In order to reduce the potential for conflict and accidents ODF has put some temporary traffic control policies into place.  First, parking along Beaver Dam Road between Highway 6 and Browns Camp will be allowed weekends only.  Additionally, a one-way traffic pattern has been set up for Beaver Dam and University Falls Roads, this one-way patter will be in effect until further notice.

Required Furlough Days and the Oregon Department of Forestry
Graphic post-it note with the words
Coping with reduced state revenues continues to require closing most state offices and facilities on certain days throughout 2011, 2012, and the beginning of 2013. As an emergency response agency, the Oregon Department of Forestry will not observe most of those required state agency furlough days that result in agency closures, remaining open for business, with the exception of the day following Thanksgiving in both 2011 and 2012. Department employees are still required to take the same number of unpaid furlough days as all other state employees; however, those days will be spread throughout the biennium, as opposed to required on mandatory state agency furlough closure days.
