DEC Announces Temporary Closure of Gulf Brook Road to Pedestrians for Culvert Repairs

Road Closed Starting Sept. 24

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced the temporary closure of Gulf Brook Road to pedestrians while culvert repair work is underway. Road work is expected to start Friday, Sept. 24, and will be completed by the end of November 2021.

Once complete, the road will reopen to pedestrian use through the winter. The road has been closed to motor vehicles since the 2019 Halloween Storm, which damaged culverts and caused washouts on the road. DEC has repaired several ditches and culverts to date. Additional roadwork is anticipated to ensure the road is resilient to damage from future storms. For more information visit the Adirondack Backcountry Information webpage.
