The BAER Team has now completed about 75% of the road surface repairs in the Stanislaus National Forest.
The Burned Area Emergency Response Team has been working over the past several weeks to make repairs in the region damaged by the Rim Fire. Much of the work over the next few weeks will focus on replacing metal culverts that were damaged.
