RAW: Reds Meadow wind storm cleanup could lead to delays beginning Aug. 7

The Inyo National Forest said in a news release that travelers should plan for delays of up to 20 minutes on the road between Minaret Vista and Agnew Meadows, beginning on August 7.

Delays should only affect this portion of the Reds Meadow Road.

Inyo National Forest is completing clean-up efforts in Agnew Meadows Campground and Agnew Group Campground resulting from the November 2011 wind event that caused wide-spread tree blow-downs. There may be traffic delays while logs are being removed from the valley.

It is expected there will be up to four loads per day being removed during a two-week period.
