Back on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day heavy rain and melting snow washed out the Silver City Road in many places in a stretch from Mile 11 to Mile 16. The road is open to high clearance vehicles but not recommended for ordinary automobiles. One lane has been rough-graded through or around the washouts. Reconstruction may be done by late summer if funding is established and a contract is awarded soon enough.
