When the Sheriff calls for a wildfire evacuation there will be chaos. The call could happen at any time of day or night. Hundreds of vehicles may be attempting to evacuate. In the midst of this chaos, it is absolutely essential that our major evacuation routes not be in flames.
Traditional federal and state sources of funds for wildfire mitigation specifically exclude roadway mitigation. Think of this $100,000 project as an investment in our collective safety. No one is going to do this for us; our Bailey Area community will have to do this on our own.
OUR MAJOR EVACUATION ROUTES
(roadways that could become blocked by a wildfire, trapping hundreds of evacuees)
> CR43 and Shelton Road
> CR72, Rosalie Rd, Roland Valley Dr
> Mt Evans Blvd and Nova Rd
