Road construction continues in Wallowa Mountains

Forest Road 66 now free of snow and available for passenger vehicles

BAKER CITY — Construction continues on the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road connecting Wallowa and Baker counties through the Wallowa Mountains.

A 13-mile stretch of the Wallowa Mountain Loop Road, also known as Forest Road 39, is under construction into the fall. The North Pine section under construction begins at the junction of Highway 86 and heads north for 13 miles on Forest Road 39 to the junction of Forest Road 66. This section of the road is closed through June 15. 

The detour route, Forest Road 66, is now free of snow and passable by passenger vehicles. This 30-mile detour is a single-lane gravel road with turnouts and is already very dusty in certain locations. It is suitable for vehicles with trailers; however, it is not recommended for motor homes. 

Forest Road 66 begins at the junction of the 39 Road and the 66 Road coming from Joseph and is also referred to as Duck Creek, Fish Lake Road, Twin Lakes Road, or Clear Creek Road. It continues west, then south, before connecting with Baker County Road 999, just north of Halfway.

The North Pine stretch will be open Monday for passage only travel until 7:59 a.m. Tuesday.

At 8 a.m. Tuesday, the North Pine stretch will be closed until 5 p.m. June 19. The 66 Road detour route will be available.

At 5:01 p.m. Thursday, the North Pine stretch will be open for passage only travel until 7:59 a.m. June 24.

At 8 a.m. June 24, the North Pine Stretch will be closed until 5 p.m. June 26. The 66 Road detour route will be available.

From July 1 to Oct. 15 the 39 Road will be open for the entire route, but travelers can expect up to one-hour delays on the 13-mile North Pine section of the 39 Road or use the 66 Road detour.
