Good Morning Boaters,
Greetings from rainy Camino!
Monday, 1/8/18: Public vehicle access to Slab Creek Road is closed all day today during a large concrete pour. Due to the slick roads and concrete truck traffic, pedestrian traffic is also limited to Slab Creek Dam Rd., no pedestrian (including kayakers) access on the Lower Construction Access Road.
Tuesday, 1/9/18 and Wednesday, 1/10/18: Slab Creek Dam Rd. at North Canyon gate is open to escorted vehicle access to the Slab Creek Reach put-in. Flat water kayakers may also travel down Slab Creek Dam Road to Boat Ramp Road with prior arrangements.
Thursday, 1/10/18: No public vehicle access in the morning (concrete pour scheduled). Check with me for possible escorted access after lunch.
Friday, 1/11/18: Escorted vehicle access available all day.
Saturday and Sunday, 1/12 and 1/13/18: Gate at North Canyon will be open all weekend. CAUTION – the current weather system has the potential to generate flows in excess of 2,000 cfs below Slab Creek dam.
It’s a good idea to always call me before driving to Slab Creek as construction schedules and weather patterns are subject to change.
Be Safe on the Water AND on the Roads!
Dave Crespo, SMUD
