Middle Piney Lake Road Opening Ceremony Sept. 3
by Bridger-Teton National Forest
September 2, 2010

BIG PINEY Big Piney District Ranger, Kurt Davis, announced that the Bridger-Teton National Forest has successfully repaired and stabilized the last one mile of Forest Service Road 10024 (Middle Piney Lake Road). Davis would like to invite the public to join him on Friday, September 3 at noon for a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the long awaited re-opening of the road. The ceremony will take place on the Middle Piney Lake Road at the gated closure then people will move up to the lake and campground for an afternoon of fishing.

This project restored vehicle access to Middle Piney Lake, and ultimately will have improved water quality in Middle Piney Creek by reducing road related sediment input, and improved fisheries habitat in Middle Piney Creek. Implementation of this project has also restored access to the Middle Piney Lake Campground and has provided the necessary access to do maintenance on the Middle Piney Lake dam.

Participants will get to see the brand new road and are welcome to fish at Middle Piney Lake if they have been properly licensed.

The Middle Piney Road flooded on July 23, 2008 approximately 300-feet below the Middle Piney dam, which has prevented vehicles from accessing the lake area. Resource managers continue to look at a more permanent fix which may include additional fortification of the road bed or relocation of a portion of the road.

For more information please call the Big Piney Ranger District at 307-276-3375.
