The beauty of this, beyond the irony of fire impacting a fire festival, is that the BORG and agencies get to test their operations plans, think on their feet and likely update operations plans. A lot depends on things along the road and Gerlach having power and the radio repeater sites operating. There is a whole supply chain that travels by road, including porto pumpings.

If JOTS pumping gets affected, that would shut it down right-quick.

Yes, I'm guessing teams are working overdrive on this one.

Roadwork - on SR-447 in both directions in Gerlach Nevada. Emergency road work on Washoe County Road 34 with intermittent 1 to 2 hour road closures; causing major delays.
Current as of: 8/31/2017 12:33:59 PM PDT
Burning Man Traffic around the same time as the above http://nvroads.com/511-home report, was reporting Wadsworth to Gate Road times of over five hours.

arrival times resumed from the re-opening of 447 post fire
we see the backlog inrush getting to Gate, then the spike in time to get to Gate Road due to the road repairs

I'VE SCREWED UP THE TIMES THE REPORTS OCCUR AT for the post fire onwards.
I've got to take someone to hospital. I'll fix the chart when I'm back.

There are some meaningful gaps in BMT providing travel time tweets.
During Tuesday's pothole repairs on 34.
During the repairs with shutdowns on 447 & 34 on Thursday and Friday.
They started providing Gate to Wadsworth times on Friday, but tweets stopped early evening.
