Creek open Big Creek Road, near Bucks Lake, is now open until snow forces closure for the winter. A slip-out a few years ago caused road realignment away from the top of the bank. The Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract for a retaining wall, drainage im- provements and guardrail so the road could be returned to its original alignment. Paving will occur next summer when temperatures allow; currently there is a gravel sec- tion over the new drainage pipe. The completed wall is a wire-and-earth wall called a "mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall."
