    Default Any updates on the Haul Road?

    Has anyone been up there recently? Looking for road conditions and construction updates. And as always has anyone seen any caribou.

    Try this again...I'm working up on the slope, so I haven't actually been on the road recently. We have had a number of days with a lot of rain and it's pretty overcast today. My guess is the road between pump stations 4 and 5 is a little sloppy. Weather forecast for tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday is to be sunny and in the mid 70's. Hope that helps some.

    Good to know. Will be driving up on the 10th, hope the weather is fair and the construction is minimal.

    My buddy is currently working up by pump station 1 and has said there are caribou in large numbers all around that area.

    Had quite a bit of rain just west of Pump One the last couple of days. Slope roads are nasty because of it. Not sure what it's doing between three and two though.

    There is a thread in the hunting forum where a guy gave a report (Hike out). sounds like they were seeing bulls around mile 350.
