Dumont entrance road updates

Recommended Posts

I can't do 25mph. I have to go less. My Damn trailer lights are perfectly align with my truck rear tires . It kicks up rocks and breaks the lens every time I do 25mph...I tried covering them up with sponge/foam and duct tape but I forget to take them off on the way home. .. so I just do 24mph...it seems to work.

I would give it a D+ before and after MLK weekend... and getting charged for MLK being a holiday! That should have been a smooth road!

Does not look good for anyone going this weekend.

Oh man...well I was going Saturday for the day for some testing. Maybe I'll just park at the little dunes. Hope BLM steps up.

Some one said there is a 5' sinkhole in the center that "ate" a truck . . . can somebody keep us updated?!

We have the video on our facebook group Southern Nevada SxS Addicts from one of the members, who is the actual driver of the truck.

When the water is running like that, how long does it usually take for it to subside?

Got this from BLM today"FYI - The Barstow Field Office is currently mobilizing equipment and rock to repair storm damage to the Dumont Dunes Access Road. There are some people that are at the Dunes and stranded....unable to leave the area due to the condition of the road. Expect to have a corrective action in place early this evening."
