I spend a lot of time working in remote places – interior Alaska, the Aleutians, lots of places where there are no roads and very limited access. One of the first rules you learn when you begin working in places like these is, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Doesn’t matter if you think you can make it work better. Doesn’t matter if you think your way of doing it would be more efficient than what’s there. It’s always a mistake.May 7, 2014 6 a.m. read more..
Forest Service engineers have closed a portion of the Kamiah-Pierce Road 100 at milepost 22.7 due to a crack in the surface. A site inspection by the engineers found the ground has shifted causing an upheaval and sag in the road surface. Until further investigation into the cause of the movement in the roadway is completed, it will remain closed.May 7, 2014 6 a.m. read more..
