Expect delays for work on road with access to Twin Lakes, Wickiup Reservoir


A road that people rely on to get to North Twin Lake, South Twin Lake and the northeastern side of Wickiup Reservoir in Central Oregon will be undergoing repaving and patching work for about a week and drivers should expect long delays.

Here is information from the Deschutes National Forest:

The Deschutes National Forest road crew will be repairing the pavement edges and patching potholes on Forest Service Road (FSR) 4260 which provides access to North Twin Lake, South Twin Lake and the northeastern side of Wickiup Reservoir.

The work is slated to begin tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 7) and tentatively last through the week. Road repairs are scheduled for the stretch of road beginning at the junction of FSR 42 and 4260 and running 3.28 miles south until the pavement ends. This stretch of road accesses North Twin Lakes Campground and Day Use Area, West South Twin Campground and Boat Launch, Twin Lakes Resort, South Twin Lake Campground and Day Use, Gull Point Campground and Boat Ramp, and North Wickiup Boat Ramp.
