Sections of roads damaged by rain and flooding in the Sam Houston National Forest are closed until the U.S. Forest Service can make repairs.
On the west side of the forest, portions of Forest Service Roads 222, 233, 234, 203 and 271 are closed, according to Acting District Ranger Mary Hughes Frye.
As a result, there is no access for day-use or camping at Kelly’s Pond and the trailhead for the Multiple Use Trail is closed due to wet conditions.
“We will begin repairs on these roads as soon as the ground dries out enough to use heavy equipment,” Frye said. “We know this is frustrating for the public and it is frustrating for us as well. If we can get a few days of dry weather we will be out making repairs.”
Roads are closed to all traffic and are not safe for any vehicle.
