Blaine County Sheriff – Warm Springs Update: Mandatory Evacuation Lifted

June 8, 2017 - 6:00 pm in non emergency by Nils Ribi

Update – June 8, 2017 – Message from Blaine County Sheriff:

Effective June 8, 2017 Blaine County Road and Bridge has completed the road repairs on Warm Springs Road and has lifted the road closure that was previously been in place. Warm Springs Road is now open out to Frenchman’s Bend Hot Springs. The Road is still closed beyond the Hot Springs as parts of the road have been washed out – this is past the point where the County maintains the roadway. The Forest Service is aware of needed repairs. Dollarhide Summit is not currently accessible.

The Mandatory Evacuation order for Warm Springs has been lifted by the Sheriff. Please use extreme caution in this area.

Please maintain your situational awareness and be prepared to depart again immediately if conditions change. If you are in danger, DO NOT WAIT for an Evacuation Order.
