Magdalena Ridge Road Closure

From the official web site for the Magdalena Ridge Observatory:

"Intensive road maintenance and repair, including cleaning out culverts, will commence on March 21. This is in preparation for the Single Telescope construction which will start on or about April 18. In consultation with Dennis Aldrich of the USFS, Forest Road 235 will be closed to the public on work days from March 21 until further notice. Work days currently are Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 5:00 pm. The road is open during non-work hours and on weekends. In mid-April work days may be extended to six days per week, and hours may change. This site will be updated accordingly.

According to Rob Selina, site engineer for the Magdalena Ridge Observatory, the guards were misinformed and work days do not include weekends, so the road is closed only on weekdays from 6 AM to 5 PM, and some Saturdays for the next 3 years and possibly much longer, depending upon how long the construction lasts.


The Next Hash will be on the 2nd of June

Stay tuned for info, but presume it is the same time and place with Virtual Clinton and DSB as the hares. The July Hash will probably be on the 7th but stay tuned.
