Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest

The Nez Perce National Forest and the Clearwater National Forest will have a total of 17 Forest Service road repairs this year. Work is expected to begin as winter thaw permits. Surveying will begin soon on FSR 426 and FSR 5503, with construction activity at these locations expected to start May 3rd.

The 5503 Swan Creek road is currently closed for public safety. The 426 Bridge Creek road currently has a seasonal closure, which will be extended during road construction work.

All designated sites will be resurfaced and rebuilt where washouts have occurred. This may include new drainage, retraining walls, rock embankments, or reinforced soil slopes.

Recent investigation of initial locations was made by Debco Construction.
