SFNF: Cattle Guard Installation On Jemez Ranger District Postponed Until Spring

SFNF News:

SANTA FE – Santa Fe National Forest officials postponed the installation of cattle guards on Forest Road 105 (Sulfur Creek Road) and Forest Road 106 (Thompson Ridge Road) until spring. 

Installation was originally planned the week of Nov. 12, but is postponed until forest officials can ensure emergency access during construction.

The plan is to complete the project ahead of the next grazing season.

Public notification will be made as soon as new installation dates are determined. Once the project begins, the forest roads will be impassible from approximately 9:30 a.m. to no later than 5:00 p.m. on the day the cattle guards are to be installed.

The locations are:

  • Forest Road 105 just north of the Rancho de la Cueva residential development;
  • Forest Road 106 just north of the junction of Forest Roads 105 and 106; and
  • Work also is expected to impact the Thompson Ridge residential development.
