I have hunted up there for years.  There was no more ecological damage occurring from that road than from any number of other forest service or state roads.  I don't know how long that road was there but my granddaddy used to drive it to elk camp and he's been dead for a couple decades now. 

This is just another example of Presidential priorities filtering down through the federal depts.  IIRC, the initial cost estimates for repair of this "100 year" flood damage on the 1501 rd was $50k; the cost of permanent closure and road bed removal was $500k.  I have no doubt it would have been a different priority and outcome under the current administration.

Don't let your government divide us on questions of access to our hunting and recreation areas.
