DNR will dedicate new bridge for motorized recreation in Capitol State Forest April 30
Grant from Yamaha helped fund the new bridge

OLYMPIA – The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will dedicate a new bridge in Capitol State Forest with a volunteer work party and ribbon cutting beginning at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, April 30, at the Straddleline ORV Park near McCleary in Grays Harbor County.

The new bridge will replace an old bridge that crosses a fish-bearing stream on the motorized Trail #50 in Capitol State Forest. Volunteers are needed to help with gravel and restoration work  along the trail and around the bridge to prevent sediment delivery to the stream.
The bridge is funded in part by a Yamaha OHV Access Initiative GRANT. The grant funding helps promote safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas.
