LaBarge Creek Road closes for new culvert


The Bridger-Teton National Forest will temporarily close La-

Barge Creek road to complete a culvert replacement later this month.

As part of a multi-year project to improve road infrastructure and stream passage

for native Colorado River cutthroat trout in the La Barge Creek drainage, culvert

replacement construction will occur on Little Clear Creek on the Kemmerer Ranger

District. This work will connect 2 miles of currently inaccessible spawning and

rearing habitat, as well as reduce the risk of future road failures.

A temporary road closure in the La Barge drainage will occur during the week

of Aug. 19. During this week, LaBarge Creek Road will close for one day, but will

not remain closed overnight.

Travelers in the La Barge headwaters should consider alternative routes, including

access over Sheep Pass via the Smiths Fork Road or access from the Tri-Basin

area along Greys River Road.
