Portion of Tomahawk Trail closed due to icy conditions


REGIONAL- Due to extreme icy conditions and danger from trucks hauling timber, the Kawishiwi Ranger District has temporarily closed a five-mile portion of the Tomahawk Road (Forest Road 377) from Highway 1 east to Forest Road 381. The road is closed to the following types of traffic:

• Any vehicles driven by the general public.

• Snowmobiles, dogsleds, and all-terrain vehicles.

Motorists are reminded to use caution on all Superior National Forest Roads. Many are ice-covered.

This closure will remain in effect until road conditions improve and closure postings are removed. It is prohibited to travel on forest roads that are posted closed or are designated as closed by this order. People involved in current timber management contracts and activities will be allowed access.
