The U.S. Forest Service has issued the formal closure of Forestdale Road to motorized traffic, including snowmobiles, in Alpine County.
District Ranger Ginny Wilson said the Forest Service has been working on the closure for some time.
"We have done a winter recreation plan to separate uses between motorized and nonmotorized," she said.
Now if a snowmobile rider is stopped on the road, they could be cited, Wilson said.
