As of October 6th, the reconstruction to Service Road 225 on mile 9.9 to 10.1 has been completed under the Temporary Area Closure Order (03-0698). This section of 225 is now open to vehicle travel.
Any violation of this prohibition is punishable as a Class B misdemeanor by a fine of not more than $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for organizations, or by imprisonment for not more than six (6) months, or both (see 16 U.S.C. § 551, 18 U.S.C. § 3571(b)(6), 18 U.S.C. § 3581 (b)(7)).
