Road to Opal Creek gets a Facelift

If you have ever visited Opal Creek or the Three Pools recreation area outside of Salem you know how bad the road gets when it switches from asphalt to gravel.  Considering how popular the area is it is a bit surprising that the roads have gotten in such poor shape.  Well now the Forest Service is going to finally do something about it and give the roads a much-needed facelift.

Work began on Monday, June 6 to fill in the potholes and grade the Opal Creek access road.  The work will be performed on weekdays to avoid high usage times and will last for several weeks.  This is a past due improvement to these access roads that will make the journey into such an incredible place much safer and easier.
