As of Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2017, Oklahoma Gulch Road near Entiat is closed from Highway 97A to milepost 5.76.
The seasonal road closure is necessary to protect wintering mule deer habitat in their range area where there are grasses and low brush for them to feed on when snow covers the upper grazing areas.
The road closure is also in effect to prevent damage to the roadway. The road will remain closed through March 15, 2018. Snowmobilers are reminded that the closure also applies to them.
