The Lincoln National
Forest has issued a temporary closure order for the protection of human health
and safety for the Tunnel Vista Observation Site on the Sacramento Ranger
District following a motor vehicle accident on May 7, 2019.
A commercial semi-truck
and trailer crashed into the canyon just west of the tunnel on Highway 82 as it
was coming down the mountain. The truck caught fire upon impact. The trailer
separated from the truck and broke open, spilling tar onto the ground.
The Sacramento Ranger District of the Lincoln National Forest will
be burning a combination of hand and slash piles beginning May 9, 2019, as
conditions and weather allow. The piles are located off Alamo Peak Road within
timber sale areas. The prescribed burn aims to claim around 350 acres.
