Forest Road 5506 Near Pendleton Not Opening for Memorial Day Weekend

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Ore. - An eight-mile stretch of Forest Road 5506 will not open for the memorial holiday weekend, as earlier reported, due to weather related impacts in areas where road repair is currently underway.

Forest Road 5506 is closed from its intersection with forest road 55 at Texas Bar to the Oriental Creek Campground. Gold Dredge Campground is not accessible. Oriental Creek Campground is still accessible via roads 5507 and 5506130, but is not recommended for most vehicles.

Originally, the road was closed during the week and open on weekends to allow for recreation access. The road will now remain closed until the road repair and maintenance is complete.
