Downstream, from the Dyer side, the road is open as far as the parking lot near Spice Run Road. The area downstream of the Three Forks Bridge is gated off and remains impassable.

Most of the road width has slid off the mountain in that area making it impassable by motor vehicles. \u00a0The Forest has closed the road, using gates, on both sides of the slide.\r\n\r\nHowever, people can drive in from either the upstream or downstream side of the slide.\r\n\r\nFrom the upstream\/Marlinton side: \u00a0People can drive the Williams River Road from the Highland Scenic Highway to Tea Creek Campground to the Three Forks Bridge. \u00a0All roadside campsites are open.\r\n\r\nFrom the downstream\/ Dyer side: People can drive the Williams River Road as far as a parking lot near Spice Run Road \u2013 located downstream of the private property that is near White Oak Run.
