    My buddy and I just confirmed that Brown's Camp quarry is closed again. "The Beaver Dam quarry", the Dept of Forrestry office at Forest Grve said, "will be closed for a month or two."

    You can get updates calling the 503-357-2191.

    Darn, just as soon as I found it they close the place. Hopefully it won't be closed for too long.

    From: stephanie.a.beall@state.or.usDate: Tue, 21 Apr 2009 15:33:29 -0700Subject: Beaver Dam Rock Pit CLOSED Hi Everyone, On Tuesday, April 21, 2009 the big rock pit on Beaver Dam Road near Browns Camp will temporarily close to all public use as a contractor will be moving a rock crushing operation into the rock pit. The rock pit will be closed to all activity seven days a week for the duration of the rock crushing operation and the area will be signed closed. After all rock pit development activities have been completed all work and the contractors have moved their equipment out of the pit area, the rock pit will again be open to public use. The end date for the rock crushing project has not been determined – I will send out an e-mail and web update when the rock pit re-opens to the public. If you would like further information or have any questions, please contact ODF Road Specialist Thomas Whittington at 503.357.7435. Stephanie A.

    So, why is it when the weather gets good, they always have rock crushing operations? I hate to say it, but it's getting quite redundant.

    It is probably because the rock crushing operation needs decent weather to operate. I know it sucks, but I think they don't do too much rock crushing in snow, high wind and 2" rain per day conditions. Also it is the time of the year that crushed rock is more in demand for repairs and new construction that use it.

    beaver dam quarry still closed but looks like when they are done it may be deeper and a little bit wider, there is a lot of rock crushing equipment inside the quarry.
