Access Limited in French Gulch Area During Fire Recovery Work

Aug. 31, 2004 - A recent 13,000 acre fire burned through the area around French Gulch west of Redding, CA. With fire recovery efforts now in full swing in the French Gulch area, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and other agencies have announced back country travel restrictions. The BLM said all spur roads and trails are temporarily closed while crews are completing projects to stabilize hillsides and repair fire lines built to contain the French Fire.

Motor vehicle traffic will be limited to the Trinity Mountain, Tom Green Mine, French Gulch, Highland Ridge and North County Line roads, BLM officials said. Signs and gates will be used to mark closed areas. Officials are asking people to stay out of the areas so that projects can be completed as quickly as possible.

For additional information, contact Sky Zaffarano at the BLM Redding Field Office, 530/224-2100.
