Wind turbine project closes roads to hunters

Fish and Game officials say a network of roads in northern Coos will be closed to recreation this fall as the result of wind turbines being installed.

The roads are near the towns of Millsfield, Dummer, Odell, Dixville and Erving’s Location, according to a news release.

Brookfield Renewable Power is installing 33 wind turbines and construction is continuing seven days a week. The heavy traffic and equipment makes it necessary – for safety reasons – to close the roads to recreational use, officials say

The project is expected to be completed in December.

Here’s a list of the closed roads:

The following breakdown clarifies which roads are closed and which roads are open during the 2011 hunting seasons:

* The entire length of Dummer Pond Road is closed. This area also includes the upper sections of Phillips Brook to the west and side roads to the east that connect with Newell Brook.

* The lower 6 miles of Phillips Brook Road, accessed by Paris Road in Stark, are open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic up to the newly installed gate.

* Newell Brook Road is open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic. Roads branching off Newell Brook Road to the west have gates prohibiting access to Dummer Pond Road.

* Millsfield Pond Road and Signal Mt. Road off of Route 26 are open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic, allowing access into the majority of the Town of Millsfield.

* To the north, the West Branch of Clear Stream is closed from Route 26 near the Log Haven Restaurant.
