Road Closure

Hello everyone I’m a new member and I wanted to say that this road closure was like a kick in the teeth to me my family has hunted down this road since the early 1900’s I grew up in that spot. Every year it was like a family reunion we always took great care of the area we even had a bridge to cross the creek since the old road was too worn to drive across. So needless to say when my uncle and me went to go walk back there this past Friday it was closed I am so upset and more pi$$ed than I have ever been with this state. I know if I complain about it to the state it will fall on deaf ears but yet if I wanted to have an Enduro race or a Jeep jamboree that would be ok with them. Thank you for letting me vent.

you are way off on the state supporting any motorized events without a massive push from the user group. This road was not closed because of motorized damage for the most part, it was closed as part of an agenda under the guise of protecting endangered plants.

Lodge your complaint in person with the superintendent of Wharton Rob Aurmueller. He is closing roads at his whim using his authority which he is able to do. This is not yet a State authorized closure known as MAP which is coming in the future. When implemented you will see many closed roads. As of now the closed roads in Wharton are due to Aurmueller. He'll listen then tell you his reasons so a complaint won't do any good, but the fact you're speaking up to the person responsible matters.
