POW - Forest Service officials want to remind Prince of Wales residents that because of clean-up efforts at the former logging camp site near East Twelve Mile Arm, vehicle use and parking will be prohibited from the junction of Old Franks Road to the end of the East Twelve mile road until approximately Nov. 20.

About three miles of road will be affected and signs will be posted in the area.

The site is 35 miles southeast of Craig was formerly used for logging support and maintenance activities by Ketchikan Pulp Company, various operators, and by contractors from about 1959 until 1995.

The cleanup efforts will involve transporting old vehicles and equipment parts from the old logging camp so there will be heavy truck traffic in the vicinity of the site.

"We regret any inconvenience this may cause but the temporary restriction is necessary for public safety and to expedite clean-up efforts," said Dale Kanen, Craig District Ranger.
