Forest officials issue caution concerning increased traffic on road into Lake Pillsbury

UPPER LAKE – Visitors traveling to Lake Pillsbury on Highway 20 and East Side Potter Valley Road should watch for increased traffic related to the Westshore timber sale, Mendocino National Forest officials said Friday.


Visitors should expect to encounter more traffic, including log trucks, on the popular access route to the lake through the rest of this summer, according to the report.


Drivers in the area are asked to be observant and drive safely in the area to prevent accidents. This includes observing posted speed limits, staying in the appropriate lane for direction of travel – especially on curves, and watching for trucks and other vehicles entering roadways.


The Westshore timber sale is a hazardous fuels reduction project planned and implemented through the Northwest Forest Plan. It is intended to restore forest health in the area and help protect local communities from the threat of wildfire.


For more information, please contact the Mendocino National Forest Upper Lake Ranger District at 707-275-0676 or visit www.fs.fed.us/r5/mendocino.
