Lake Forrest Drive to Remain Closed
The closure of Lake Forrest Drive, between Stewart and Maryeanna will remain in effect for an indefinite time period.
Structural and geotechnical engineers who reviewed the site today maintain concerns regarding the instability of the slope and potential for additional rock slides.
Drivers traveling south are asked to detour from Lake Forrest Dr. to Stewart Drive to Roswell Road, onto Maryeanna Drive which will connect you back to Lake Forrest. For those traveling northbound, please take Maryanna Drive north to Roswell Road to Stewart Drive, connecting back with Lake Forrest. Drivers are asked to use extreme caution and maintain the posted speed limits along the detour routes.
A section of Lake Forrest Drive just south of this location was closed in 2013 related to similar slope stability issues. Repairs necessitated the closure of Lake Forrest for several months.
Updates will be provided, as further information is available.
