French Creek Ingress/Egress Escape Route Development to extend south and upslope from Homestead Lane and connecting with French Creek Road
Funded and expected to be completed in December 2011
The Fire Safe Council is attempting to address the need for an escape route for the residences on Homestead Lane. The residences are located up creek and upslope from J-H Ranch, sharing the road with the ranch with one bridge creating a bottleneck. A bridge is under design and construction but will not address many possible fire start scenarios.
The FSC is developing partnership and relationship with landowners upslope for possible routes for escape route fuel break.
