SPREAD THE WORD!!!
County Road 407 will be opened tonight, Saturday August 11th at approx. 9:00 p.m.
There will be a strictly enforced 45 mph speed limit.
CR 414 to 410 will remain closed and manned barricades will be in place.
We request that residents returning to their homes remove ribbons from their 911 signs and leave a porch or outside light on at all times when staying in the area.
These precautions will greatly assist emergency personnel in the event of another evacuation.
Those with cabins and camps in the area will be allowed to return to check on properties, but are strongly advised to not remain overnight until further notice.
The fire is still active in this area and travelers on CR 407 will encounter large equipment, especially between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Please remember the 45 mph speed limit and drive with your lights on.
M-123 remains at a 25 mph speed limit and all evacuations in the Chesbrough Lake and Widgeon Creek areas are still in effect.
