Canyon Lamoille reopens this weekend | Local
The route begins just west of the town of Lamoille and ascends into the Ruby Mountains, ending with a circular route and parking spaces for hikers.
When the road fully reopens, anyone driving, biking or hiking should be on the lookout for hazards such as cracks, crumbling shoulders, loose rocks and other debris, the Forest Service has warned. Signs and K-rails were installed where the shoulder of the road was damaged to keep vehicles away from the side of the road.
Elko County Commissioner Rex Steninger said he requested the letter from the Congressional delegation because “I was getting frustrated to hear Josh say we don’t have the money, we don’t have the money. not the money, “while Congress spends” billions and billions “. of dollars.
He said, however, that Nicholes asked him to file an action on the letter.
Nicholes said in late August that the district requested emergency funding to help with cleanup and repair costs after heavy rains caused 20 debris flows. The largest was over 10 feet deep, according to the Forest Service.
“Now that we can see under all of this debris, there is still a lot of road and culvert repairs to be done,” Nicholes said.
He also requested that people not disturb or remove any of the soil or rock debris that has been stored in the canyon. This material will be used for repairing roads and culverts, and the loss of the material could increase repair costs.
