Galbraith Gap Parking Area Closure Notification 

The parking area will be closed for public use on May 11 and 12, 2017 for stone delivery. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Laurel Run Road Project to Begin

Grannas Bros. Stone and Asphalt Co. Inc is scheduled to begin the DSA road project on Laurel Run Road beginning Monday, September 25. The roadway shall be closed during this work and for a duration of time, upon completion, to allow the Driving Surface Aggregate to sufficiently dry.

The section of Laurel Run Road between the township road (Whipple Dam Road) and Biedler Road will be affected. Laurel Run Road thru traffic will need to use Biedler Road.

Additionally, when driving southwest on Greenlee Road, it will temporarily be a dead end road just prior to the Laurel Run Road/Greenlee intersection. Whipple Dam Park traffic will use winter traffic patterns to enter and exit the park. Closure is estimated at two to three weeks. 

Don’t Move Firewood

To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
