Logging Truck Activity to Increase Northwest of Fairfield


By Paul Johnson

Shoshone, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) – Logging truck activity near the town of Fairfield is expected to increase in the next few weeks due to a forest thinning project in the Chimney Creek drainage northwest of Fairfield. The timber from the West Camas timber thinning project was sold in an auction last week to Boise Cascade Wood Products. There will be approximately 100 truckloads hauling 500 Thousand Board Feet to LaGrande, Oregon over the next few months. Trucks will travel the 1100 Road south to Highway 20 then southwest to Mountain Home and onward to La Grande. Recreationists in the Chimney Creek drainage should drive with caution as there will be logging traffic on the roads.
