FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Sevenmile Road (Forest Road 225), located north of Rustic in the Roosevelt National Forest, will temporarily close on April 6, 2018, due to wet conditions from spring run-off. The closure is necessary to maintain the integrity of the work done in previous years to repair this road following the September 2013 Flood. The road will remain closed until the road base has a chance to dry.
