McIntyre County park access road to close
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - Reclamation's Yuma Area Office reports that beginning on Dec. 10, due to mobilization of heavy equipment for maintenance of a backwater and inlet/outlet river channel structures near Peter McIntyre County Park in Blythe, the access road located immediately contiguous to the Colorado River will be closed through mid-January 2013.

The access road is located parallel to the Colorado River and is located on the east perimeter of the county park.

The upcoming maintenance activities are part of Reclamation's efforts to improve habitat conditions and channel flow from the Colorado River into the C8 Backwater area. Drought conditions and insufficient channel flows have caused significant amounts of river sediment to accumulate in this area over the past several years - requiring modification of the inlet/outlet channel structure.

In conducting the maintenance work, Reclamation will be operating long-reach excavators, haul trucks, and bulldozers along the access road in this area.

To address public safety concerns, Reclamation will close the river access road for the entirety of the construction activities.

No launching of boats or river recreation will be permitted to occur in this area until construction activities are complete. The remainder of Peter McIntyre County Park will remain open during the construction period.

For further information about this upcoming construction activity, please contact Doug Hendrix, (928) 343-8145.
