Milsap Bar Campground and nearby road closed due to construction

Milsap Bar Campground and a section of nearby road on the Feather River Ranger District of the Plumas National Forest will be closed beginning tomorrow due to construction to replace a retaining wall damaged by the 2020 North Complex fires.

The road will be closed starting on the west side of the bridge on Forest Service Road 22N62 near Milsap Bar Campground, going past the campground to the closure of Road 22N62 to Road 22N94, which is also part of repair work from the North Complex fires.

The closure order is for public and employee safety as work is done to replace the retaining wall.  It is expected that construction equipment will be staged and operated in and near the campground during the project.

The campground and small section of Milsap Bar Road are scheduled to be closed until Sept. 30, but may open sooner if work is completed.

“We are working with the contractor to get this work done and appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding while this important repair work is being done,” said Acting Feather River District Ranger Clay Davis.

The closure is referenced as Order Number 05-11-03-23-01.  There will be public notifications when the closure order is lifted or modified further.

The closure order is for public and employee safety as assessments and work continues to repair and restore access to roads and recreation sites affected by the fire.

Violations of the closure order are punishable of a fine of not more than $5,000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization, or imprisonment of not more than six months or both.
